9780099498162: Missing Kissinger

'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

At a children's tea party, a magician tries to pull a rabbit out of a hat, but takes out only its head; a young man has a mother and girlfriend who each demand that he gives them the other one's heart; while a Nobel Laureate asks an orphan to perform a very strange task.

In Etgar Keret's blackly comic stories the unexpected can, and usually does, happen. They are clever, quick, sometimes violent and often intensely poignant. They are, in short, brilliant.

Review:

"This collection of short stories is easily one of the most memorable, moving and laugh-aloud-funny books you'll read in a long time" (Hepzibah Anderson Daily Mail)

"Many of the very short stories in this collection are more thought-provoking than the average novel" ( Independent on Sunday)

"A collection of short, surreal fragments that place the reader in peculiar and often moving worlds" ( Metro)

"A beguiling, savagely funny collection of stories...he'll leave you with more questions than answers but you'll feel all the better for it" (Daniel Trilling New Statesman)

"These are 46 horror stories from Israel, though they acrobatically shape-shift from the political to the fabulous, and are outwardly comic... I enjoyed these wild, blackly inventive pieces very much at times" (Todd McEwan Guardian)

From the Publisher:

Missing Kissinger is a powerful new collection of stories from Israel's bestselling Etgar Keret - most of which are being published in English for the first time.
