This is more than a collection of 35 short stories by the talented Israeli author. It’s a meditation on the human condition, full of sharp observations, comic references, and devastatingly honest emotions. Some of the stories are uncomfortably truthful, while others are flights of fantasy. Narrating all of this is a stable of unique voices ranging from the authors Ira Glass, Gary Shteyngart, and Nicole Krauss to the actor Willem Dafoe, television writer and producer Josh Radnor, and others. Some of the narration can be uneven, but Keret’s words redeem any shortfalls. Examples of the talented narrators include Josh Charles, who has a deep, round tone and a gentle manner that perfectly complements the author’s words, and Adam Thirlwell’s British accent, which supports a strong, robust reading about lying. It’s an excellent audio and literary experience. R.I.G. 2013 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
