– Deborah Solomon asked Shteyngart some questions and did not even seem very hostile.

– The same day, Shteyngart wrote an essay for The Book Review.

– The next week an excerpt from the book ran.

– And The Times‘ Fort Greene Local blog reported that according to Shteyngart Brooklyn is “the future of books.” No need to feel excluded, outer boroughs! Gary Shteyngart LOVE FOR ALL.
