In Conversation with Isabel Duffy

Hailed as “one of his generation’s most original and exhilarating writers” by the New York Times and as the “Chekhov-Roth-Apatow of Queens” by The Millions, Shteyngart is a one-of-a-kind writer. LAKE SUCCESS, his first novel in seven years, follows a Wall Street millionaire on the run when his dream of the perfect marriage, perfect son, and perfect life implodes and he escapes on a cross-country Greyhound bus trip to find his college sweetheart. Named one of the Most Anticipated Books of 2018 by Entertainment Weekly, Vulture and The Millions, the novel has been praised by Kirkus (starred review), Library Journal (starred review) and Publishers Weekly. Richard Ford, Elizabeth Gilbert, Tom Perrotta, Maria Semple, and Nathan Hill are early fans, as well. I’m including praise and more information below. I hope you’ll take a look at the book Elizabeth Gilbert said reflects “with perfect comedy and horrible tragedy exactly what America feels like right this minute.”
