    The author of two critically acclaimed novels, The Russian Debutante's Handbook and Absurdistan, gives readers a hilarious and heartfelt new novel, in which he envisions a deliciously dark tale of America's dysfunctional coming years -and the timeless and tender feelings that just might bring us back from the brink. A reader can hope for nothing less! Just for starters, suppose, say in a very near future - oh next Tuesday - a functionally illiterate America is about to collapse. Just don't tell this to Lenny Abramov, the 39-year-old son of an angry Russian immigrant janitor, proud author of what may well be the world's last diary, and less proud owner of a bald spot shaped like Ohio. Enough? 334p.

    This phenomenal debut novel's protagonist Vladimir Girshkin is what Kingsley Amis's Lucky Jim would be, if he were a Russian emigre trying to cope with the confusions of life in America in the 1990s and the incessant demands of an ambitious and endlessly aggrieved mother. Vladimir's picaresque adventures satirize Americans' and Russians' preconceptions about their former cold war enemies and to send up their illusions about themselves in what amounts to a full-spectrum examination of the bizarre weightless state of exile. 'Sardonic, moving and ingeniously crafted.' 476p. Winner of the Stephen Crane First Fiction Award; A New York Times Notable Book.
