Tania Hershman/The ShortReview

Fantastic that you've found Etgar Keret, I think he is fabulous, I have several of his books. He is a great guy, too, softly spoken, humble. He lectures in film and the film he made together with his wife, Jellyfish, scooped a big award at Cannes. We reviewed Gaza Blues, the collection he did together with Palestinian writer Samir el-Yusseff, on The Short Review.

Thanks, Tania! I'll look for your review and see if I can link to it here.

You've got to get The Bus Driver Who Wanted to be God, his earlier collection. "Pipes" is an amazing short story, and "Kneller's Happy Campers" is maybe my favorite novella of all time (and the inspiration for the recent movie Wristcutters). Overall, it's not quite as strong as the Nimrod Flip-Out, but it's got some of his best work.
