Comic Fiction Prize goes to Super Sad True Love Story

Looking for something funny to read? The Guardian reported that Super Sad True Love Story recently won the UK's Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction, the first book by a US author to do so. This book by Gary Shteyngart tells the story of middle-aged Russian-American Lenny Abramov. Living in a depressing near-future America, Lenny is obsessed with three things: living forever, his books (or "printed, bound media artifacts," as they're now known), and Eunice Park, a 24-year-old Korean-American who both entices and torments him. But despite the title, perhaps this love story will not have a super sad ending...
