À propos

Little Failure is Gary Shteyngart's bestselling and very funny memoir. A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In 1979 seven-year-old Gary Shteyngart and his parents left the Soviet Union for the consumerist paradise of America. As good Russian Jews, Gary's parents were determined that he make something of himself. As a diminutive asthmatic with a runny nose, Gary knew his was to be a life of spectacular disappointments. He wasn't wrong. In Little Failure he reveals how, by ending up a prize-winning novelist, he visited great shame on his family. 'Dazzling, exquisitely charted. Time spent with Shteyngart is like being with Woody Allen on speed: razor-sharp, funny and deeply moving' Mail on Sunday 'A marvel of a story. His finest book yet' Zadie Smith 'An immigrant story, a coming-of-age story, a becoming-a-writer story. Dazzling' Meg Wolitzer Gary Shteyngart was born in Leningrad in 1972. In 2007 he was named one of Granta 's Best Young American novelists. His debut The Russian Debutante's Handbook was widely acclaimed (and won the National Jewish Book Award for Fiction), as were his second, Absurdistan (one of the 10 Best Books of the Year in the New York Times) and Super Sad True Love Story (which won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize).
