The 2014 Lollapalooza lineup has been announced.

"At its heart 'Hotel Solitaire' is a family drama set in the high-stakes world of global finance, moving from upstate New York to Shanghai, Mumbai, Dubai," Mr. Shteyngart said in an email. "It's about how power is disseminated in the world today and what happens when a spreadsheet jockey trades in her Excel for a Glock 22."
