Two satirists, one Israeli and one Russian, join forces for an evening of new stories read by well-known actors. Keret has made some strides in the U.S. the past few years, landing his loopy, fantastical short neofables in The New Yorker and a great 2012 collection titled Suddenly, a Knock on the Door. Super Sad True Love Story, the most recent novel from Shteyngart (Absurdistan, The Russian Debutante’s Handbook), taps into the insecurity and longing of a middle-aged man, even while charting a dystopic near-future.
