Check out Deborah Soloman’s terrific, ultra-quippy interview with the author of Absurdistan, Gary Shteyngart.

Shetyngart touches on the death of silence, Russia’s antiquated notions of espionage and the state of American fiction.  Also, if you haven’t already, read Shteyngart’s phenomenal personal essay in last week’s Book Review, and stay tuned for our very own Rumpus original interview with the man himself, coming soon!
