Gary Shteyngart’s new novel

I’m not allowed to reproduce this wonderfully imaginative excerpt for Gary Shteyngart’s new novel, Super Sad True Love Story. I’m going to assume by the title he’s been hanging around Jonathan Safran Foer lately.

(Here’s a teaser, though: pistachio ice cream and early Velvet Underground!)


Roast Suckling Pig

Well, my favorite analogy of the past week is the following:

A Catholic priest advising a married couple on their sex life is like a vegetarian rabbi advising you on how best to prepare roast suckling pig at your next luau.

Or, for that matter, Jonathan Safran Foer.

Buon appetit!
