Steve AlmondReduced to their outlines…these [stories] can sound gimmicky. But Keret alights upon protagonists in the midst of psychic upheaval, willing to embrace the bizarre twists that deliver them to their appointed grace or ruin. The humor in their travails arises not from an effort to charm the reader but to confront the darkness that shadows our human folly…[Keret]'s most effective when he strips away the constraints of realism and gives rein to his subversive imagination.
