Product description

Review

A memoir for the ages ... Un-put-down-able ... Little Failure is his best book to date (Mary Karr, author of The Liars' Club)

One of America's most exciting writers (Guardian)

Shteyngart has carried the spirit of Russian literature into the iPhones, subways and suburbs of America (Financial Times)

A marvel of a story. His finest book yet. (Zadie Smith)

People who think Gary Shteyngart is a very funny man and a complete pervert are in for a shock by the time they finish this memoir: he turns out to be a very complete man and a funny pervert. Little Failure is a delight (Aravind Adiga)

I'm always wary when a young writer offers up a memoir, but Gary Shteyngart delivers big-time with Little Failure. His family's story is quite remarkable, and it's told with fearlessness, wisdom and the wit that you'd expect from one of America's funniest novelists (Carl Hiaasen)

If you, like me, have often wondered: How did Gary Shteyngart get like that? Little Failure is the heartfelt, moving, and truly engaging memoir that explains it all. Dr. Freud would be proud (Nathan Englander)

Portnoy meets Chekhov meets Shteyngart! What could be better? (Adam Gopnik)

Hilarious, moving, compelling . . . Thanks to Little Failure, the army of readers who love Gary Shteyngart is about to get bigger (The New York Times)

Little Failure finds the delicate balance between side-splitting and heart-breaking (Oprah Magazine)

About the Author

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). He writes regularly for the New Yorker.
