The extraordinary collection, has the kind of writing that could hook a lot of readers, including some who rarely open a book (Keret) takes readers on a trip full of insight.
Wonderfully surreal, laugh-out-loud-funny stories-all of them gems from a singular storyteller.
Keret’s stories flick between the banal and the tragic with a satirist’s instinct for the telling detail, the self-revealing comment or gesture. But he is also committed to what (Ted Hughes terms the act of metamorphosis, the unendurable intensity that lifts the whole episode onto the supernatural or divine plane, and it is this that makes his work exceptional.
