Selected by Indie Booksellers for the August 2010 Indie Next List
“This Herculean burst of a novel is charged with a furious energy, a restless insanity, an overall lust, and a love affair with language. Lenny Abramov is part Woody Allen protagonist, part dutiful dreamer, and wholly human. Eunice Park is the object of his affection, and she means business. Super Sad True Love Story is all that it promises to be, with super sharp satire, prophetic visions, plucky otters, and a lot more. It's a miracle this book doesn't explode in the reader's hands!”
-- Zach Sampinos, Sam Weller's Books, Salt Lake City, UT

Wodehouse and has been awarded to Brits � until this year when it was given to a self-proclaimed Russian-Jewish New Yorker. Shteyngart won for his third work of fiction, Super Sad True Love Story, and he will be given a pig named after the novel as a part of the prize. Shteyngart told Robert Siegel, "This is what I've been writing for all my life. The last award I won was the National Jewish Book Award � and now I get to hang out with a pig." More at NPR.org
