Jonathan Lethem, Gary Shteyngart
American authors Jonathan Lethem and Gary Shteyngart discuss radicalism, belonging and why being 'American' is no longer enough.
Gary Shteyngart is the author of Super Sad True Love Story, Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante's Handbook. Born in Leningrad, he moved to America in the '70s. His new memoir is called Little Failure.
Jonathan Lethem's books include The Fortress of Solitude, Motherless Brooklyn and Chronic City. His new novel Dissident Gardens draws on his upbringing in hippie New York and explores radicalism from American communism and folk music to the Occupy movement.
