Etgar Keret in The Guardian

The Guardian provides a brief overview of the stories of Etgar Keret:

As an author, film director, playwright, TV scriptwriter, graphic novelist and university lecturer, Etgar Keret has been a ubiquitous figure on Israel’s cultural scene since the publication of his second collection of short stories, Ga’agui Le’Kissinger (published in English last year as Missing Kissinger), in 1994.

Typically just a few pages long, Keret’s stories are punchy, imaginatively audacious and often very funny, his humour lying between Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce. The son of Holocaust survivors, with an ultra-Orthodox sister and an anarchist brother, it is perhaps predictable that his work should be so resolutely non-ideological.
