    No country in Latin America has escaped the symbolic influence of the United States to the extent that Revolutionary Cuba has. This resistance meant that for approximately three decades the Soviet Union had an invitation to intervene in practically all Cuban spheres. With sixteen essays by renowned writers and artists, Caviar with Rum: Cuba-USSR and the Post-Soviet Experience is the first book of its kind to bring to life how and why the Soviet period is revisited these days and what this means for creative production and the future of geopolitics.

    Matthew Klam launches his long-awaited first novel Who is Rich?, following his critically acclaimed short story collection Sam the Cat. Unfolding over four days, Who is Rich? is a warped and exhilarating study in midlife alienation, bitterness, lust, and love. Rich Fischer is a once-sort-of-famous, now struggling cartoonist, and husband and father of two. Amy O’Donnell is a forty-one-year-old painting student, mother of three, wife to a brutish Wall Street titan who commutes to work via helicopter. Rich and Amy are reunited at the eccentric summer arts conference where drum circles happen on the beach at midnight, clothing optional. Will they rescue each other or destroy each other? Jennifer Egan says, “Who Is Rich? is an electric amalgam of frustration and tenderness, wonder and rebellion.” Klam launches his first novel (and first book in 16 years) at Greenlight in conversation with New York Times bestselling author Meg Wolitzer.
