Fly already by Etgar Keret( Book )

12 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's no one like Etgar Keret. His stories take place at the crossroads of the fantastical, searing, and hilarious. His characters grapple with parenthood and family, war and games, marijuana and cake, memory and love. These stories never go to the expected place, but always surprise, entertain, and move.... The thread that weaves these pieces together is our inability to communicate, to see so little of the world around us and to understand each other even less. Yet somehow, in these pages, through Etgar's deep love for humanity and our hapless existence, a bright light shines through and our universal connection to each other sparks alive

Gaʻaguʻai le-Ḳising'er by Etgar Keret( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in Hebrew and Spanish and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Desde su irrupción en el panorama literario internacional, Etgar Keret ha cautivado a lectores de todo género y edad con su particular estilo literario. En relatos de unas cuantas páginas, Keret plasma situaciones límite de la vida diaria, que cuando es mirada a través de su minuciosa lupa, revela no tener nada de cotidiana. Su escritura refleja la volátil, violenta e incierta realidad de Medio Oriente, pero no desde la grandilocuencia ética o moral, sino mediante fugaces destellos de situaciones y personajes inmersos en un caos que los trasciende, en un intento por mantener la cabeza a flote, encontrando valor y sentido en el absurdo circundante. Entre los 49 cuentos que componen este volumen se encuentran algunos que ya se han convertido en referentes keretianos, como "Romper el cerdito", "Listo para disparar" o, el que da nombre al libro, "Extrañando a Kissinger."
