Four Stories

 
Etgar Keret

Paper $5.95    |    978-0-8156-8156-4    |    2010

Reviews
"Etgar Keret is the voice of young Israel. . . . Unlike anything else the country [is] producing."
The Independent

"Etgar Keret’s short stories are fierce, funny, full of energy and insight, and at the same time they are often deep, tragic, and very moving."
—Amos Oz, author of A Tale of Love and Darkness

Description
This booklet includes a lecture called "Second Generation" and four remarkable short stories by Etgar Keret: "Asthma Attack," "Shoes," "Siren," and "Foreign Language," the last of which has never before appeared in the United States. Openly discussing his family background for the first time, Keret brings to life the confused experience of growing up as an Israeli child of Holocaust survivors. One of Israel’s leading voices in literature and cinema, Keret mixes wry humor, keen intelligence, and subtle tenderness to create some of the most provocative and entertaining stories of his generation.
