Product description

From Israel's most popular and acclaimed young writer--"Stories that are short, strange, funny, deceptively casual in tone and affect, stories that sound like a joke but aren't" (Yann Martel, author of "Life of Pi") Already featured on "This American Life" and "Selected Shorts" and in "Zoetrope: All Story" and "L.A. Weekly," these short stories include a man who finds equal pleasure in his beautiful girlfriend and the fat, soccer-loving lout she turns into after dark; shrinking parents; a case of impotence cured by a pet terrier; and a pessimistic Middle Eastern talking fish. A bestseller in Israel, "The Nimrod Flipout" is an extraordinary collection from the preeminent Israeli writer of his generation.
