While out celebrating Gary Shteyngart’s beautiful new novel LAKE SUCCESS some joker glued our heads together. Go see this wonderful man as he travels around the country - bringing his book to a city near you. He’s super humane, super witty, & the friend who’ll let you crash on his couch when things get funky.
Just binged this bonkers great story collection NOTES FROM THE FOG by Ben Marcus—sorta JG Ballard crossed with Twilight Zone plus weirdly funny & soulful. This guy was my 1st teacher at UT-Austin 20+ years ago & helped me become a writer (don’t hold that against him). Love this new book.
