Gary Shteyngart To Get Google Glass

 

Novelist Gary Shteyngart was one of the people tapped for a trial of Google Glass, giving the satirist a chance to explore a technology straight out of one of his novels. He told BuzzFeed this was not a joke: “we’re working on trying to adapt [Super Sad True Love Story] as a television series, so it would be helpful for me to see just how close this thing is.” 

Shteyngart also appeared on KCRW’s To the Point show this week, talking about his new pair of fancy glasses. Despite his new technological push, he reassured readers that this wasn’t the end of his writing career:

I gave up on writing novels with all this technology. So now I finished a memoir. Even as I’m looking into the future with Google Glass, I’m trying to look into the past with the rest of me.
