From the Quotation of the day mailing list, 2014-03-07:

"My novel-a love story between Lenny, an aging son of a Russian immigrant and the last book reader on earth, and Eunice, a younger, fully digital Korean-American woman-proved prescient all too quickly. New York City parks occupied by protesting ninety-nine-per-centers, transparent women's clothing, and a general giddy sense that privacy is kind of stupid-all became reality right after "Super Sad"'s publication, making me feel like a very limited Nostradamus, the Nostradamus of two weeks from now."

-- Gary Shteyngart, on the predictions made in his novel Super Sad True Love Story.
