Some book trailers feature a lot of stock images, maybe a moody voiceover or dramatic font…and then there’s this.
Now that’s how you do a book trailer!
That’s author Gary Shteyngart bro-ing out with Ben Stiller over hedge funds. The reason? Shteyngart’s new novel.
Lake Success is blending finance, fiction, and a whole lot of funny. The book tells the story of Barry Cohen, a hedge fund guy whose fund is being investigated by the SEC. He flees his failing marriage, autistic son, and imploding career on a Greyhound bus, searching for his college sweetheart across America.
Check out two more of Shteyngart’s epic book trailers.
“After three acclaimed novels, Gary Shteyngart turns to memoir in a candid, witty, deeply poignant account of his life so far. Shteyngart shares his American immigrant experience, moving back and forth through time and memory with self-deprecating humor, moving insights, and literary bravado. The result is a resonant story of family and belonging that feels epic and intimate and distinctly his own.”
