The Russian Debutante's Handbook ** SOLD **
The Russian Debutante's Handbook
New York: Riverhead Books, 2002.
Gary Shteyngart's debut novel, in which he kick-starts his comic vision of multi-cultural ineptitude and corruption.
Russian immigrants to the US form the background to a curious pyramid scheme in a city that resembles Prague.
There's some eco-terrorists and a dungeon mistress. It's all wearily cynical, and very funny.
