Super sad true love story : a novel by Gary Shteyngart( Book )

51 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 2,413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a very near future -- oh, let's say next Tuesday -- a functionally illiterate America is about to collapse. But don't that tell that to poor Lenny Abramov, the thirty-nine-year-old son of an angry Russian immigrant janitor, proud author of what may well be the world's last diary, and less-proud owner of a bald spot shaped like the great state of Ohio. Despite his job at an outfit called Post-Human Services, which attempts to provide immortality for its super-rich clientèle, death is clearly stalking this cholesterol-rich morsel of a man. And why shouldn't it? Lenny's from a different century -- he totally loves books (or "printed, bound media artifacts," as they're now known), even though most of his peers find them smelly and annoying. But even more than books, Lenny loves Eunice Park, an impossibly cute and impossibly cruel twenty-four-year-old Korean American woman who just graduated from Elderbird College with a major in Images and a minor in Assertiveness. After meeting Lenny on an extended Roman holiday, blistering Eunice puts that Assertiveness minor to work, teaching our "ancient dork" effective new ways to brush his teeth and making him buy a cottony nonflammable wardrobe. But America proves less flame-resistant than Lenny's new threads. The country is crushed by a credit crisis, riots break out in New York's Central Park, the city's streets are lined with National Guard tanks on every corner, the dollar is so over, and our patient Chinese creditors may just be ready to foreclose on the whole mess. Undeterred, Lenny vows to love both Eunice and his homeland. He's going to convince his fickle new love that in a time without standards or stability, in a world where single people can determine a dating prospect's "hotness" and "sustainability" with the click of a button, in a society where the privileged may live forever but the unfortunate will die all too soon, there is still value in being a real human being

"Gagosian Gallery is pleased to present Damien Hirst: Poisons + Remedies, a catalogue illustrating the two new painting series which debuted at Gagosian Gallery, Davies Street in London 2010. The Poisons paintings feature skulls, a recurrent icon in Hirst's oeuvre, silkscreened in black UV ink with charcoal onto large canvases and titled after toxic chemical preparations, suggesting possible causes of death accompanying each ghostly visage. The Remedies paintings contain colored resin and plaster pills scattered across a white background in a chaotic arrangement. Poisons + Remedies reminds us of the tenuous boundaries between life and death, acknowledging the life-altering role of science while alluding to the redemptive powers of art. This fully illustrated catalogue also features two essays by novelist Gary Shteyngart."
