Gary Shteyngart was born in the former Soviet Union. He moved to the US along with his family when he was seven years-old. On New Year’s Eve 2014, he had an idea: what would it be like if he spent a week watching just Russian state TV?
Gary Shteyngart has been at the top of the New York Times bestseller list, is one of Granta's Best Young American Novelists, and was just selected for the New Yorker's '20 under 40' list. We talk with him about his new book, 'Super Sad True Love Story.'
