Reviews

Etgar Keret's writing hits like a bullet. Kneller's Happy Campers is fast and bizarre and full of a fearless street-punk surrealism, as though Charles Bukowski is channelling the imagination of Lewis Carroll. The darkest fun I've read in ages -- Matt Haig
Keret mixes the laconic style of Raymond Carver and the insane wit of Quentin Tarantino into his own particular, melancholy combination of themes... It's not just a story about people who have taken their lives, but rather a metaphor on how the post-ideological generation is trying to live and survive in this world * Spiegel *
There is a subtle mix of innocence and awareness, of caustic irony and tender humour that emerges from this text, as well as from its brilliant author * Le Monde *
I think he is a brilliant writer, entirely different from any other I know. He is the voice of the next generation -- Salman Rushdie
