story: The Luck of Kokura
author: Gary Shteyngart
year:  2018
where: a diner in Manhattan 
note: Well-developed main character, and some comparisons of Atlanta and NYC that ring true. The secondary character felt a bit too slick. Some of the political lines reminded me of the planted political lines in the Will and Grace reboot. 
a line: “’You got to try the Philly-cheese-steak pizza,’ she said, ‘I could eat it every night.’”
