Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart

In the near future, America is crushed by a financial crisis, and Chinese creditors may just be ready to foreclose on the whole mess. Then Lenny Abramov, son of an Russian immigrant janitor an ardent fan of "printed, bound media artifacts" (books), meets Eunice Park, an impossibly cute Korean-American woman with a major in Images and a minor in Assertiveness. Could falling in love redeem a planet falling apart?

Mkay, I didn't really know what to expect from this. I can't even remember why it piqued my interest, honestly. And I enjoyed how it was written and the "in the future" factor ... but the actual story .... hmmm. I was interested in bits of it. But now that I've finished, I'm not really sure I "got" it.
