Etgar Keret Gets Streetwise

In Books, Comedy, Culture, Television on May 14, 2012 at 10:30 pm

While Etgar Keret, the Israeli novelist and screenwriter, was in the country to promote his latest book “Suddenly, a Knock on the Door: Stories,” he went for a walk with the Forward’s Dan Friedman.

Keret — the writer The New York Times called a “genius” and the man Salman Rushdie referred to as “the voice of the next generation” — opened up about the difficulty of leaping over the gender gap to write as a woman and expanded upon his own peculiar theory of literature. On their stroll through Manhattan streets they discussed soccer, cheese, fatherhood, sex with animals and blasting the world to pieces.
