The Nimrod Flip-Out

The Nimrod Flip-Out


In this collection of brilliant, bite-sized satiric tales, Israel's bestselling Etgar Keret chronicles the strange ironies that suffuse his characters' lives. Daring, illuminating, intense and poignant, these stories are as painfully funny as they are brief and cover a remarkable emotional and narrative terrain, confirming Keret's status as Israel's national conscience.


  • As Keret is Israeli, it's easy to read his fiction as political allegory... But it's equally easy not to, and simply to delight in a collection of funny, sad, spirited and entertaining stories. 5 stars
