A Tel Aviv resident, the author only occasionally refers to the violence that Israelis live with. But in a way, his entire sensibility derives from that. How are reincarnated dogs, thinking television sets, or transforming girlfriends any stranger than the possibility of suicide bombers? Keret’s willingness to live with oddity, to find the genuine emotion and humanity in the midst of it, strikes me as eminently sane.
