WATCH GARY SHTEYNGART READ GOGOL

Watch this video of SLS Montreal special guest Gary Shteyngart reading from Nikolai Gogol‘s classic Dead Souls, in both English and the original Russian; Shteyngart’s appearance at New York’s 92nd St Y was in celebration of the Russian writer’s 200th birthday (being Gogol’s 200th, Shteyngart is a relatively springish 37).
