Super Sad True Love Story

Gary Shteyngart

Cyberpunk science fiction. Centred on an unlikely romance, this satirical novel is set in the near future dystopia America, a police state controlled by data gadgets. Youth pop culture reigns, the rich buy immortality, and you can guess what happens to the elderly, the poor or the American immigrants.

'You'll see me extinguished,' I told Joshie.
'That would be a big heartbreak for me, Lenny,' Joshie said, his voice broken with exhaustion, or maybe just boredom.
'Three hundred years from now, you won't even remember me. Just some flunky.'
'Nothing is guaranteed,' Joshie said. 'Even I can never be sure whether my personality will survive forever.'
