The Fletcher School is delighted to host best-selling author Gary Shteyngart for an upcoming discussion on his latest book, "Absurdistan." The discussion will be moderated by Professor Michael Klein.
We've purchased and distributed several hundred copies here on campus and are encouraging the global Fletcher network to join in and to fortify our already strong community and intellectual ties.
Gary Shteyngart was born in Leningrad. His novels include Absurdistan
and Super Sad True Love Story
, which won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize; excerpts from both books were published in The New Yorker. His début novel, The Russian Debutante’s Handbook
, won a Stephen Crane Award for First Fiction and a National Jewish Book Award for fiction. He published his first memoir, Little Failure
, in early 2014.
