About this author


The chatter has died down. There's been a deluge of damning admonitions, something I might term You Go Girl Feminism, and insightful commentary, but will any of the any of the conversation be a prophylactic against future scrutiny of Her Face?



Whether Her face is the visage a famous actress or belongs to a friend you grew up who has had the temerity of suddenly looking younger than you, the semi... Read more of this blog post »

Annabelle Gurwitch Annabelle Gurwitch said: " This book was so delicious, I liken it to eating a thick cut steak- cooked black and blue- it's crusty on the outside and juicy on the inside. It's also a dark satire of reality tv shows- a genre I loathe and I think is the bell weather of the apocal ...more "

I don't understand at all why this book doesn't get 5 stars here on GoodReads. This is one of my all time favorite books that I've read in the last years.

I went to a reading to see Emily and I was really knocked out. This book is not a read to take lighty. THe subject matter is really deep.

This was my first book of Mr. Shtyngart's that I've read, and I have to confess I have a "talent" crush on him. First of all, I love a dystopian future tale.

“Kissing is a means of getting two people so close together that they can’t see anything wrong with each other.” —RENE YASENEK”
Annabelle Gurwitch, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up: A Love Story

“It's also at that moment that I realize I am able to maintain the level of judgmentalness that I so cherish only because I have someone in my life who knows me so well and still manages to love me. Isn't that what love is? Knowing someone's life story and not using it against them? OK, maybe it's more like knowing someone's life story, using it against them, and still loving them.”
Annabelle Gurwitch, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up: A Love Story

“When I was twelve, my sixth-grade English class went on a field trip to see Franco Zeffirelli’s film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. From that moment forward I dreamed that someday I’d meet my own Juliet. I’d marry her and I would love her with the same passion and intensity as Romeo. The fact
that their marriage lasted fewer than three days before they both were dead
didn’t seem to affect my fantasy. Even if they had lived, I don’t think their
relationship could have survived. Let’s face it, being that emotionally aflame, sexually charged, and transcendentally eloquent every single second can really start to grate on a person’s nerves. However, if I could find someone to love just a fraction of the way that Montague loved his Capulet, then marrying her would be worth it.”
