The layered complexity of these stories emerges gradually, as the reader is drawn into their world. Beautiful writing that takes you by surprise in the most pleasurable way. I look forward to the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A journey into Keretland, Oct. 19 2004
Keret's vision is unique, startling, funny, tragic. One is immediately transported in his tales to another dimension, where anything can happen, but there is nothing arbitrary about what does happen. Before you know it, you've had an intense experience, without quite understanding how. This is magical writing: controlled and wild, it reaches into the undercurrents of our perceptions and the world around us. The only genre classification I can think of is Keretian.
