Read in April, 2012

This is a collection of very short, imaginative, surreal stories by an Israeli author. The stories are all well translated into English. Most of the stories have unexpected, absurd twists that took me quite by surprise. They manage to be both sad and humorous at the same time--that's quite a feat! Each story captures a realistic bite of life, and then adds an absurd twist that takes the approach to the extreme. I can just imagine listening to the author, Etgar Keret as a master storyteller, reeling out phantasmagorical tales in a nonstop flow of whimsy.
