Taped by WGBH Forum Network, Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story, visited Harvard Square's Brattle Theater to discuss his memoir, Little Failure.

Shteyngart reads from part of his memoir and discusses, in his usual hilarious and wry fashion, the difficulties of emigrating from Russia as a child.  He recalls run-ins with teachers, becoming a writer, and trying to make people love him.

This talk took place on January 23, 2014 at 6:00 p.m.
