Something New – Super Sad…well, you know

UPDATE: This book is more The Handmaid’s Tale than 1984 and the final chapters are depressing and heart-wrenching. Worth the read and then ruminate about after. Read it so I can chat about it with you.
Gary Shteyngart just won the Wodehouse Prize.
Here is a blurb about it:
“You want a good literary prize to have harrumph and stature, and that’s why you want to win the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction. The British award, named for author P.G. Wodehouse, involves not only a trip to a posh arts festival in Wales and a boatload of champagne, but a pig named after your book.”
So he has that going for him.
