About the Author

Etgar Keret was born in Tel Aviv in 1967. His stories have been featured on This American Life and Selected Shorts. As screenwriters/ directors, he and his wife, Shira Geffen, won the 2007 Palme d'Or for Best Debut Feature (Jellyfish) at the Cannes Film Festival.

Reviews

"Keret is a brilliant writer . . . completely unlike any writer I know. He is the voice of the next generation." --Salman Rushdie

"Keret may be the most important writer working in Israel right now; certainly he is the closest observer of its post-intifada, post-Oslo spiritual condition. And astonishingly, he is also the Israeli writer closest to the literary tradition of pre-Israel, pre- Holocaust European Jewry . . . Kafka said that literature should be an ax to break the frozen sea within us. Keret is a writer whaling at the ice with a Wiffle ball bat." --Stephen Marche, The Forward

"Short, strange, funny, deceptively casual in tone and affect, stories that sound like a joke but aren't--Etgar Keret is a writer to be taken seriously." --Yann Martel

"Keret can do more with six . . . paragraphs than most writers can with 600 pages." --Kyle Smith, People
