An intelligent satire that entertains from start to finish — in fact, you're unlikely to find a funnier, sharper political novel this year. Shteyngart's hero is a 325-pound Russian Jew whose idea of sexy pillow talk is reciting the Zagat's guide to New York City restaurants. Oh, if only Misha could get back into the United States to reunite with Rouenna, love of his life, light of his mangled, purple khui. If only.
