Description

Gary Shteyngart, author of The Russian Debutante's Handbook, creates a compelling reality in this tale about an illiterate America in the not-too-distant future. Lenny Abramov may just be penning the world's last diary. Which is good, because while falling in love with a rather unpleasant woman and witnessing the fall of a great empire, Lenny has a lot to write about.

Professional reviews

"What do you get when you cross Woody Allen with LOLITA and 1984? Gary Shteyngart's new satirical novel, SUPER SAD TRUE LOVE STORY. Listeners are transported to the future, where they witness the romance of Lenny Abramov (narrated by Adam Grupper) and his girlfriend, Eunice Park (narrated by Ali Ahn)--as told through the written diary entries of Lenny and emails from Eunice. Grupper's voice proves perfect for the character of Lenny, and the listener easily experiences all the subtle humor and satire Shteyngart has given him. The star of the narration is Ali Ahn. Her portrayal of Eunice as a superficial and self-absorbed young woman couldn't be better. The use of dual narrators in no way distracts from the story as the format of Shteyngart's book lends itself to dual narration. Grupper and Ahn's performances provide listeners with all the wit, humor, and clever writing to be found in this unique novel. J.R.G. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
