Hmm It s either a brilliant Candide esue satire of the clueless wealthy idiots who got us into our current mess maybe they didn t vote for Trump but they thought about it etc or it s a tone deaf straight white liberal male asking uestions about how we got here And if you finish a book and wonder which one it is chances are the answer isn t going to be positiveGary Shteyngart is the first of his cohort to bang out a proper Trump responding novel although this only tangentially connects to our 45th President mainly taking place over the 6 or so months leading up to the 2016 election and while the book displays everything you d expect from a Shteyngart novel humor pathos lovely sentences it just feels misguided Barry the main character is too dumb and too naive to truly be engaging and the supporting cast is almost universally reduced to a single if not stereotype then pretty damn close And everything about Barry s journey reeks of the how did this happen series of uestions that clueless liberals over the age of 40 have been asking for the last 18 months I wish I could ve loved this book and I ll bet that it ll get a great run of reviews in all the right places not to mention commercial acclaim But this was a misguided novel from start to finish and here s hoping it s the only one we have to deal with because so help me once Franzen and Eugenides et al get into the game we ll deserve everything coming to us
