Bringing up a child, lying to the boss, placing an order in a fast-food restaurant: in Etgar Keret's new collection, daily life is complicated, dangerous, and full of yearning. In his most playful and most mature work yet, the living and the dead, silent children and talking animals, dreams and waking life coexist in an uneasy world. Overflowing with absurdity, humor, sadness, and compassion, the tales in Suddenly, a Knock on the Door establish Etgar Keret--declared a "genius" by The New York Times --as one of the most original writers of his generation.

The latest by one my favourite authors & brilliant as always. His stories are humourous, magical, deeply sad, very real & thoroughly engaging. he has to be one of the most under-rated writers working currently. #ABookOfShortStories

Short stories are tough for me. But I enjoyed this book a lot. Great thoughtful stories. They are very varied in their content and focus so there is something for everyone in this book. DO IT!
