On Future Fatigue: Gary Shteyngart's Attack on the Young

Despite telling friends it "gets better" (that was wrong) I was more disappointed than anything else with SSTLS. Great idea. Alas, the "future" of the book suggested a whole lot of funny, interesting ideas to come, for the most part, refused to sketch them out further, all the way through. That's what I like about SciFi (or disaster) books, and without an interesting love story to bolster the lack of detail, I was left wanting more and (while feeling like I'd had enough of the allusions to something clever he was holding back).

On Restaurant People Really Hate Food Bloggers

I'm not so sure Josh is beloved. It's more like he's a living, (heavily) breathing embodiment of "why haven't I made it yet?" Anyway, I guess Time overlooked the freebies because the wedding wasn't sponsored by Thrillist?
