$5.00 - On Sale Now
Harvard Book Store is excited to welcome award-winning novelist, and one of The New Yorker's 20 Under 40 fiction writers, GARY SHTEYNGART, as he reads from his most recent book, Super Sad True Love Story, just out in paperback.
In the near future, America is crushed by a financial crisis and our patient Chinese creditors may just be ready to foreclose on the whole mess. Then Lenny Abramov, son of an Russian immigrant janitor and ardent fan of “printed, bound media artifacts” (aka books), meets Eunice Park, an impossibly cute Korean American woman with a major in Images and a minor in Assertiveness. Could falling in love redeem a planet falling apart?
"It's a high-wire act, pulling off a novel that's simultaneously so biting and so compassionate, and in his earlier books Shteyngart, while unfailingly shrewd and funny, wasn't always this tender. Super Sad True Love Story is indeed a sadder, and also a better, book." —Salon.com
Online ticket sales for this event have ended. Tickets are still available at Harvard Book Store and by phone at 617-661-1515. Tickets purchased online can be picked up when the doors open at the Brattle Theatre, around 5:30pm on Wednesday, May 18.
Walking from the Harvard Square T station: 10 minutes
As you exit the station, cross Mass. Ave. and proceed along Brattle St. Follow Brattle St. as it curves to the right in Brattle Square (follow the sidewalk on the right side of the street). The Brattle will be on the left-hand side of the street. The building is shared with Algiers Cafe and Alden & Harlow Restaurant, and the theatre entrance is on the left side of the building—look for the sidewalk poster case and marquee.
