Super Sad Love Story
Put together one of America’s best novelists – the irreverent Russian-born Gary Shteyngart – and the only UK comedian who is an expert in Yiddish – the sparkling David Schneider – and you will get a super-funny, super-sharp conversation about the future of books, media culture, the fall of the American empire and our need for love.
David Schneider – comedian writer and Yiddish academic – attained fame in films and TV shows such as The Day Today and I’m Alan Partridge. He is currently writing a BBC sitcom and a play.
Gary Shteyngart is an American novelist, born in Leningrad. His satirical novels – The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, Absurdistan and Super Sad True Love Story – have won major prizes.
