by Etgar Keret - £9.99 Vintage (2006)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780099497226 | ISBN 10: 0099497220
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.
"Full of strangeness and sudden transformation... funny, sad, spirited, idiosyncratic and entertaining."
