Description

In this collection of brilliant, bite-sized satiric tales, Israel's bestselling Etgar Keret chronicles the strange ironies that suffuse his characters' lives. Daring, illuminating, intense and poignant, these stories are as painfully funny as they are brief and cover a remarkable emotional and narrative terrain, confirming Keret's status as Israel's national conscience.

Review quote

A wildly, wonderfully optimistic collection * Times Literary Supplement * Don't ask questions: just enjoy...Exhilarating * Guardian * Etgar Keret is the voice young Israel * Independent * Etgar Keret's short stories are fierce, funny, full of energy and insight, and at the same time they are often deep, tragic and very moving -- Amos Oz As Keret is Israeli, it's easy to read his fiction as political allegory... But it's equally easy not to, and simply to delight in a collection of funny, sad, spirited and entertaining stories. 5 stars -- Laurence Phelan * Independent on Sunday *
