1. Art history has been crucial to many of your novels, with famous paintings playing key roles. Which Modern Art paintings or artists should readers study to prepare for your new novel?

I’d prefer to preserve the mystery by withholding the names of any specific paintings, but I will tell you that Langdon is a great admirer of Modernists Gaugin and Picasso. In this novel, as he moved into the world of Contemporary Art, Langdon must come down from his ivory tower, set aside his classical predilections, and navigate a landscape of avant-garde works that challenge his very definition of art.

1. You have been successful in many forms of entertainment including Graphic Novels, Short Stories, Novellas, Films and Novels. Do you have a preference among them, and if so what was your favorite project to work on?

    Probably the new book, Strange Weather, has been my favorite. It's a collection of four short novels, stories about guns and the grotesque, the impossible and the unstoppable. I wrote them longhand over the course of the last five years, jotting them down in between more demanding projects. You could argue that the novella is the best of all literary forms. You get all the depth of characterization to be found in a full length novel, and all the pedal-to-the-floor energy of a short story. Most of all... they're fun to write.

Little Failure by Gary Shteyngart
Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart
The Russian Debutante's Handbook by Gary Shteyngart

1. All of your insecurity-ridden characters speaks volumes to me, in so many ways. Will we ever meet a Shteyngart protagonist that is confident, suave and just generally not as self-loathing?

Oh, yeah, the character in the book I'm working on is not a COMPLETE loser! He actually thinks he's suave and confident. And he loves himself like any good American. Of course, train wreck ensues.
