8:15 PM - 9:30 PMZoom

“A brilliant writer… completely unlike any writer I know. The voice of the next generation.” —Salman Rushdie

Etgar Keret is an internationally acclaimed Israeli writer and filmmaker. Known for his short stories, rarely extending beyond three or four pages, Keret fuses the bizarre with the banal and offers a window on a surreal world that is both dark and comic. Keret's books have been published in over 45 languages and are bestsellers in Israel. His books include The Bus Driver Who Wanted to Be God, Missing Kissinger, The Nimrod Flipout, The Girl on the Fridge, Suddenly a Knock on the Door and Fly Already (which won the prestigious Sapir Prize). Keret is also the author of a memoir, The Seven Good Years, in which he contemplates moments of his life against a backdrop of constant conflict, casting an absurd light on both the monumental and mundane. More than 60 short movies have been based on his stories.

Keret's work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and the Paris Review, among many other publications. He is a regular contributor to This American Life.
