Quotes of the Day–Gary Shteyngart–7/18/10

Shteyngart, who could pass for my friend Tim Dawson

“I don’t know how to read anymore. I can only read 20 or 30 words at a time before taking out my iPhone and caressing it and snuggling with it.”

“American fiction is good. It would be nice if somebody read it.”

From Shteyngart’s recent interview with The New York Times Magazine.  Shteyngart’s new novel is on the way.  I’ve only read Absurdistan, but am looking forward to what’s next.
