Visit Ruelle Electrique to read my latest review of Gary Shteyngart’s “Super Sad True Love Story,” a super sad and super good novel set in a futuristic America immersed in 24/7 social media. In this dystopian world, reading books is frowned upon, and as such acronyms abound in daily life communications: LOL, JBF, J/K, ROOFLARP! Quelle horreur! A master humorist, Shteyngart, as you may recall, was named earlier this year as one of “The New Yorker’s” 20 Under 40 Best Writers. I highly recommend this fun, sad, and surprisingly moving novel.
