Etgar Keret has become one of the most famous contemporary Israeli writers of short fiction. His stories, written in Hebrew and translated to English and many other languages, mix regular language with fantastic and surrealistic elements. Fans of “This American Life” may have heard some of his stories over the years. Keret uses humor to examine the absurdities of life in Israel. We will discuss several stories from his collection The Bus Driver Who Wanted To Be God & Other Stories (2004), which will be assigned to read in advance of the class.
