Gary Shteyngart: Super Sad, Super Funny

Gary Shteyngart and The Warwick's Staff
Can't Stop Loving the Camera
Gary Shteyngart, critically acclaimed bestselling author of Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante’s Handbook stopped by Warwick’s on Wednesday August 11th, to read from his latest, Super Sad True Love Story, a brilliant, hilarious, super sad (of course) look into a dystopian future ruled by personal electronic gadgets, credit scores, male hotness ratings and a cowboy-hat-wearing cartoon otter. You can watch the complete video below and be wowed by Mr Shteyngart’s driving skills, diminutive stature, charming self-deprecating humor, chameleon-like ability to pivot from New York Guy accent to Russian speaking elderly Jewish lady mid-sentence and his intestinal fortitude as he cut through a thorny thicket of questions with his machete-like wit about what it’s like in Russia and if he’s ever touched a student. Capitivating stuff. Trust us, most of the staff was on hand for one of the best events of the year.



Still reading?  Can't get enough of this event?  You're in luck, as we also have the audio from Mr. Shteyngart's appearance conveniently squeezed into a reasonably sized  mp3 file, which, for the purposes of branding we are calling The Warwick's Bookcast.
