    But having gotten a taste, we will eagerly await his next offering, in which less just might be more. Tyler Is Not Here Shteyngart is a miracle to behold; his facility and ease with language make for the most enjoyable reading. But it wasn't true: Vladimir was short. A chunky old Russian gent sporting the traditional flea market attire and six-dollar crew cut had trapped the poor fellow with his crutches and was now slowly leaning in on his prey, trying to bite him with his silver teeth. What keeps it worth reading is Shteyngart's wild imagination in depicting the American and the Eastern European scenes.

    Recommended for all literary collections and larger public libraries. It was not clear to me whether Vladimir actually found himself or love or even a career, but he found safety. A good part of the story is set in Prague, that city's celebrated Baroque soul swamped in the tatters of two world wars and one Cold War. Vladimir's son.

    The girl -Morgan. Vladimir was twenty-five today. If you do not mind reading the same type of genre and style then I would recommend both of his books. I found it a good book. Yes, sex night with Challah.
