Part Kafka, part Vonnegut, with the concerns and comedic delivery of Woody Allen, Etgar Keret is a brilliant and original master of the short story. Hilarious, witty, and always unusual, declared "a genius" by "The New York Times," Keret brings all of his prodigious talent to bear in his sixth bestselling collection.
