bi' israilli etgar keret ve bi'filistinli samir el-youssef 'un yazdıkları kitap. ilgimi çekti çünkü avi pardo çevirmiş. o çevirdiyse bir bildiği vardır. tez zamanda edinmek ve okumak lazım gelir.

etgar keret'in 8-10 kadar öyküsü ve samir el-youssef'in bir uzun öyküsünden oluşan güzelim kitap. itiraf etmem gerekir ki etgar keret'i okurken daha çok keyif aldım. dilinde hep bir mizah var. öykünün olanaklarından yararlanmasını iyi biliyor, yeri geldi mi kurgu oyunları yapıyor. öykülerdeki gerçek-üstü...more

Etgar Keret ile ucuncu, Samir El-Youssef ile ilk bulusmama vesile oldu Gazze Blues. Ismi gibi ilginc, etkeyici ve sasirtici bir kitap bu. Etgar Keret bazen sadece bir sayfa suren kisacik hikayelerinde okuyucuyu ayni anda hem huzunlendirip hem de gulumsetebiliyor ve bunu yaparken oyle etkili karakterler yaratiyor ki, siz sanki bir film izliyor gibi oluyorsunuz okurken.

Keret ne kadar etkileticiyse El Youssef da o kadar sikici geldi bana maalesef. Kitapta sadee bir hikayesi var ki o da 40 sayfa. Ke...more

I read a couple of his books. What they all have in common is his natural talent to tell stories that seem to hover slightly above reality. He has a fantasy for situations that I admire. You never know what will happen, no matter how short the short story is. If you read him I suggest doing what I do: one story a day. It lingers on, you take it with you. And he pulled it off with the very nonchalant writing style which you can enjoy without losing the focus on the story. He doesn't show off, he...more

Finita la prima parte, un insieme di racconti dell'israeliano Keret, sono un po' perplessa.
L'intento, fortemente ironico, appare evidente, meno il significato di queste microstorie. Il filo conduttore vorrebbe essere l'insensatezza, spontanea reazione allergica ad una guerra infinita. A me per ora pare invece una bruttissima copia, stilisticamente parlando, de "La metamorfosi" kafkiana.

Librino ultimato, però se mi interrogassero sui contenuti prenderei uno zero secco. I racconti brevi di Keret...more

Teledyski na papierze, jedne lepsze drugie nie do końca zrozumiałe, ale "Rury", "Buffalo" i opowieść o króliku to totalne must read.

I give a 5 to Keret and a 3 to El-Youssef. The final piece by El-Youssef seemed to go a bit in circles and without a strong intent. I think the author wanted to demonstrate the restless nature of the main character and how his life is based on drugs and last options, but meh. Keret, on the other hand, was funny, had something important to say in each story, and delivered his message in a way that was not heavy-handed.

Schräge Geschichten, denen man manchmal die geografische Verortung anmerkt, manchmal nicht. Plausible, irrationale, unerwartete Wendungen machen die Kurzgeschichten des Bandes - in denen auch der Autor selbst schonmal auftritt - zu einem kurzweiligen Lesevergnügen.

i liked many of these stories better than keret's newer short fiction. the borderline-absurdist standpoint doesn't strike me as being all that effective. maybe i missed the point.
Melissa
A little disappointing. "For Just $9.99" was defintely my favorite short story in this collection.
Balthazar Simões
A collaboration between two exciting and weird contemporary writers.

“He felt full of a dense and sour substance that was blocking his chest, and it wasn't grief. After all those years, life now seemed like no more than a trap, a maze, not even a maze, just a room that was all walls, no door.” 22 likes
