bookshelves: funny, magical-realism, postmodern, read-2012, short-stories
Read from March 27 to April 08, 2012

The best of Etgar Keret’s stories are those in which, like a postmodern Israeli Kafka, he reaches through the mundane lives of his everyday characters, behind the shear curtain of reality to find the surreal underpinnings of this world as we never suspected it might be. A great example from this collection is "Guava" which you can read here. There aren't as many of these as I recall there being in The Nimrod Flipout, which I would recommend reading before this book.
