Suddenly, a Knock on the Door by Etgar Keret

Bringing up a child, lying to the boss, placing an order in a fast-food restaurant: in Etgar Keret’s new collection, daily life is complicated, dangerous, and full of yearning. In his most playful and most mature work yet, the living and the dead, silent children and talking animals, dreams and waking life coexist in an uneasy world. Overflowing with absurdity, humor, sadness, and compassion, the tales in Suddenly, a Knock on the Door establish Etgar Keret—declared a “genius” by The New York Times—as one of the most original writers of his generation.

What an amazing collection of stories. I raced through them in one sitting. I wanted to keep reading and reading and reading until there were no words left and I lay dying, old, gray and content. Funny stories. Happy stories. Crazy stories. They are all here. Buy this book. You won't regret it! ~*~LEB~*~
