Gary Shteyngart is back for his first novel in seven years, Lake Success. This is a funny, biting, resonant novel featuring hedge-fund manager Barry Cohen and his super-smart wife, Seema. Barry takes off on a cross-country bus ride and both are dealing with demons from their past. How these two flawed characters navigate the Shteyngartian chaos of their own making is at the heart of this piercing exploration of the 0.1 Percent, a poignant tale of familial longing and an unsentimental ode to what really makes America great.

Tickets are required to join the signing line. Tickets are only available with the purchase of a copy of Lake Success from BookPeople.
