About the Author:

Born in Tel Aviv in 1967, Etgar Keret is one of the leading voices in Israeli literature and cinema. He is the author of five bestselling collections, which have been translated into twenty-nine languages. His writing has been published in the New York Times, le Monde, the Guardian, the Paris Review and Zoetrope. He has also written a number of award-winning screenplays, and Jellyfish, his first film as a director along with his wife Shira Geffen, won the Camera d'Or prize for best first feature at Cannes in 2007. In 2010 he was awarded the Chevalier medallion of France's Order of Arts and Letters.

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 *
