Description
(One of the New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of 2006 and a Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and Chicago Tribune Best Book of the Year) This is expatriate Russian author Gary Shteyngart's brilliant satirical follow-up to his Stephen Crane and National Jewish Book Award–winning debut The Russian Debutante's Handbook. Misha Vainberg, aka Snack Daddy, is the 325-pound scion of the 1,238th-richest man in the new capitalist Russia, though all he wants is to keep living in the South Bronx with his Latina girlfriend. But after Misha goes to his gangster father's funeral in St. Petersburg, he finds his return visa denied. His only hope is to finagle a Belgian passport from the tiny former Soviet satellite of Absurdistan, and there the fun truly begins.

"Absurdistan is not just a hilarious novel, but a record of a particular peak in the history of human folly. No one is more capable of dealing with the transition from the hell of socialism to the hell of capitalism in Eastern Europe than Shteyngart, the great-great grandson of one Nikolai Gogol and the funniest foreigner alive."—Aleksandar Hemon
