The son of a Russian immigrant , protagonist Leonard Lenny Abramov, a middle-aged, middle class, otherwise unremarkable man whose mentality is still in the past century, falls madly in love with Eunice Park, a young Korean-American struggling with materialism and the pressures of her traditional Korean family.

So, yes, even in a serious moment like this, Shteyngart can't help but do the "kids these days are dumb" thing "Lenny always quotes this guy Froid". Sign me up. Anything subtle is worth revisiting; this book isn't.
