An Intimate Evening with Gary Shteyngart

Wednesday, October 17
6:00pm - 7:15pm
Revue Stage

1601 Johnston St, Vancouver

To laugh or to cry? The question is asked with increased frequency at news of our absurd modern world. Gary Shteyngart’s hilarious, piercing writing balances on the knife’s edge between humour and pathos in today’s culture. Described as a luminary fiction writer by The New Yorker; a frequent member of “Best Books of the Year” lists in the New York Times, The Guardian and Washington Post; and a multiple award winner, Shteyngart’s ability to critique while entertaining makes him a voice for our time. Hear from the author of Absurdistan, Super Sad True Love Story and—most recently—Lake Success about political inspiration in this time of turmoil, storytelling as medicine and how the 1 percent really live.
