Inspirational books that helps us have a positive outlook to life are my favorite reads. Though it is a memoir, Little Failure, is tremendously helpful s an inspirational book. It is a hard to put down book that easily captures your heart. Told in a strong voice, Gary Shteyngart rings his life story to life with alacrity, taking us into his world growing up as a Russian transplant youth in the USA whose immediate world or family has a harder time adapting to the way of life in their new country, resulting in uncomfortable situations for him, but whose love surmounts discomforting situations as he tried to embrace the wider world of America that he wanted to be a part of. Reminds me of the Hans, a transplant in the story Disciples of Fortune. A story to read again and again for its insightful nature.
