It’s the year of the Russian Jewish novelist. And Gary Shteyngart remains the shlubby king of the genre, earning him a spot on the Forward 50, our much-anticipated annual list.
Like her fake persona, Jewish singer/actress Lea Michele has attended many many auditions, and plans to share those experiences in a new book.
Haha. Or if you’re Gary Shteyngart feigning a Russian accent in his new book trailer, it might sound more like chah-chah. Book trailers are often too long and boring: earnest author fidgeting on a Brooklyn stoop, reciting the plot of her novel. You’re watching it thinking, “Stop telling me what happens. That’s what your book is for.”
