Etgar Keret: The Seven Good Years

(Memoir, 292 pp. Hebrew, 2015; English translation 2015)

The seven years between the birth of his son in the midst of a terrorist attack and the death of his father from cancer are the ostensible subject of Keret’s first nonfiction book published in America.  The short vignettes and ruminations are filled with wonder and life and love, poignant insights, and characteristically dark humor.
