Gary Shteyngart

Little Failure

€ 12.95

Gary 'shteyngart's parents dreamed that he would become a lawyer, or at least an accountant, something their distracted son was simply not cut out to do. Fusing English and Russian, his mother created the term Failurchka-'Little Failure'-which she applied to her son. With love. Mostly.

A candid and poignant story of a 'soviet family's trials and tribulations, and of their escape in 1979 to the consumerist promised land of the U'sA, Little Failure is also an exceptionally funny account of the author's transformation from asthmatic toddler in Leningrad to 40-something Manhattanite with a receding hairline and a memoir to write.
