From the New York Times bestselling author of Little Failure and Super Sad True Love Story comes Lake Success, a tale of familial longing and an unsentimental ode to what really makes America great.
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 three-year-old son’s diagnosis of autism, he flees New York on a Greyhound bus in search of a simpler, more romantic life with his old college sweetheart, whom he hasn’t seen or spoken to in years.
Meanwhile, reeling from the fight that caused Barry’s departure, his wife—a driven, first-generation American who craved a picture-perfect life—has her own demons to face. How these two imperfect characters navigate the Shteyngartian chaos of their own making is the heart of this exploration of the 0.1 percent.
Shteyngart is also the author of the novels Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante’s Handbook. Book signing to follow.
