The description of Gary Shteyngart’s recent novel – Lake Success– challenges our perception of what it means to become super rich: “Myopic, narcissistic, hilariously self-deluded and divorced from the real world as most of us know it, hedge fund manager Barry Cohen oversees $2.4 billion in assets. Deeply stressed by an SEC investigation and by his 3-year-old son’s diagnosis of autism, he flees New York on a Greyhound bus in search of a simpler, more romantic way of life with his old college sweetheart whom he hasn’t seen or spoken to in years. Reeling from Barry’s departure, his wife Seema has her own demons to face. Can two imperfect characters navigate the chaos of their own making?”


“Spectacular.”— NPR • “Uproariously funny.”—The Boston Globe • “An artistic triumph.”—San Francisco Chronicle • “A novel in which comedy and pathos are exquisitely balanced.”—The Washington Post • “Shteyngart’s best book.”—The Seattle Times
