    Gary Shteyngart at Politics and Prose on 9/13/10

    In his third novel the wildly inventive Shteyngart shows why The New Yorker selected him as one of its twenty young writers to watch. An old fashioned love story set in an information-binging, tech-heavy future, the story is at once keen social satire, comedy, and tender billet-doux to the unchanging vulnerability of the human heart. Super Sad True Love Story By Gary Shteyngart $26.00ISBN-13: 9781400066407 Published: Random House

    Jonathan Franzen at the Lisner Auditorium

    Jonathan Franzen at the Lisner Auditorium

    On September 24, 2010 at 7 p.m., Politics & Prose hosted Jonathan Franzen at G.W. University Lisner Auditorium. Nine years after his National Book Award-winning The Corrections, Franzen presents Freedom, which chronicles the ups and downs--mainly the downs--of the Berglunds. Patty, once a promising basketball player, is now a depressed suburban wife and mother, battling neighbors and her own demons. Her husband talks green but does business with the coal industry, while their old friend Richard has descended from would-be rock stardom to building decks.
