Recommended Short Reading

If you have never read Etgar Keret, you should!

I would recommend "Suddenly A Knock on the Door", a short story that will have you laughing out loud and also "Lieland", a short that is funny and a bit tender. Both are quirky, just like Keret himself.

I SO love this man's writing style!

The link above takes you to Keret's own web site. From that site you can click on a link to Selected Shorts where you can hear four of his stories masterfully read, including the two I recommend above, as well as a brief introduction to two of them from Keret himself. Or just click on this link to go directly to the Selected Shorts site to listen. Click on the underlined "Listen" next to "The World of Etgar Keret." You won't regret it even if you only listen to the first two.

Happy reading/listening!!
