9780099497226: The Nimrod Flip-Out

In this collection of brilliant, bite-sized satiric tales, Israeli author Etgar Keret chronicles the strange ironies that suffuse his characters' lives. A man goes to bed each night with his beautiful girlfriend, only to find himself five minutes later lying next to a short fat guy who watches sport; a faithful dog refuses to disappear, even after being shot; a little girl covets the glittery eyes of her schoolfriend; a man is surprised by a middle-eastern pessimistic talking fish; a daemon makes a living from repossessing young writers' talents. In stories as painfully funny as they are brief, Keret covers a remarkable emotional and narrative terrain, confirming his status as both Israel's bestselling young writer and new national conscience.

Review:

"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)

"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)

"Etgar Keret is the voice young Israel" ( Independent)

"Don't ask questions: just enjoy...Exhilarating" ( Guardian)

"A wildly, wonderfully optimistic collection" ( Times Literary Supplement)
