The promo trailer for Gary Shteyngart’s new novel Super Sad True Love Story features an interesting cast that includes actor James Franco as well as literary notables Edmund White, Mary Gaitskill, Jeffrey Eugenides, and Jay McInerney. The Russian Jewish immigrant has the famous guest stars humorously point out Shteyngart’s failings and general ignorance. What it has to do with the book is never clear, but hey, he comes off a as a fun guy who just wants to win readers through his associations with others. This makes more sense than a book blurb these days, and is more fun to watch.
