In a minor breakaway Soviet republic, a 30-year-old Russian-born U.S. resident named Misha has been stranded by a political catch-22, in Gary Shteyngart's satire called "Absurdistan." Misha has been denied a visa to return to the U.S., so he is forced into the murky world of untamed, post-Soviet politics in his quest to get back to the land he now considers home.
