Gary Shteyngart & Amanda Palmer

Studio 360

Kurt Andersen talks to Gary Shteyngart about his new novel Super Sad True Love Story. It's a dystopian, social media-plagued epic that reads like a hilarious 1984. An 11-year-old from Rhode Island becomes an international pop star by continuing the musical traditions of his Cape Verdean heritage. And Amanda Palmer of the band Dresden Dolls plays Radiohead songs on a ukulele, live in our studio.
