Gary Shteyngart outlines his five part survival plan for Trump’s America in an in-depth conversation with Forward executive editor Dan Friedman.
Ten years ago I interviewed Gary Shteyngart for a profile in Zeek. At the time his hair was brown and mine covered my head. In the time since then he has continued to put out books at a steady rate of one every three or four years.
