Gary Shteyngart blurbs

I worked with author Gary Shteyngart when he was just Gary Shteyngart. We used to have lunch on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and talk about writing. So I am amused by his much-sought-after book blurbs, which have their own tumblr called “The Collected Blurbs of Gary Shteyngart: A catalogue of promiscuous praise” and are the subject of this documentary.
