Part Kafka, part Vonnegut, with the concerns and comedic delivery of Woody Allen, Etgar Keret is a brilliant and original master of the short story.  Hilarious, witty, and always unusual, Keret brings all of his prodigious talent to bear in Suddenly, A Knock on the Door, his sixth bestselling collection.  Long a household name in Israel, where he has been declared the voice of his generation, Keret has been acknowledged as one of the country’s most radical and extraordinary writers.  Exuding a rare combination of depth and accessibility, Keret’s tales overflow with absurdity, humor, sadness, and compassion, and though their circumstances are often strange and surreal, his characters are defined by a familiar and fierce humanity.  Suddenly, a Knock on the Door is at once Keret’s most mature and most playful work yet, and establishes him as one of the great global writers of the twenty-first century.
