 Getting your book blurbed by Gary Shteyngart is a literary badge of honor these days. While people love the Russian-born author for his books like Absurdistan and Super Sad True Love Story, he has become the guy you want blurbing your book for some reason or another. Since Shteyngart seems to oblige to about 85% of the blurb requests, John Wray, Rachel Shukert, Adam Wilson, Gideon Lewis-Kraus and Karolina Waclawiak will all gather in the WORD basement to say thanks to Mr. Shteyngart for putting his name on their books.
