The character is a dog. If you've read Gary Shteyngart (if you haven't, you should) you know that a dog in his book probably will be treated better than the humans.
How it works: send a picture of yourself reading Super Sad True Love Story with a dog to firstname.lastname@example.org (mention it came from Third Place Books), and it will post on Bluestone. One winner will be selected By Gary, and he will name a dog in his next novel after the winner. Click here for more details.
If the picture chosen is from one of our customers, we'll frame it and hang it proudly in our store for all to see. We'll also give you a $50 gift certificate.
