Titel: Kneller's Happy Campers
Autor/en: Etgar Keret
Autor/en: Etgar Keret
1. Mai 2009 - kartoniert - 96 Seiten
A novella by the genius short story writer Etgar Keret. Mordy is dead and as is the way with all suicides, he finds himself in an afterlife populated solely by people who have killed themselves, people who still wear the marks of their deaths. Mordy discovers his beloved girlfriend has killed herself also and he must traverse the underworld in order to find her. 'Caustic irony and tender humour emerge from this text as well as from its brilliant author' "Le Monde"
Born in Tel Aviv in 1967, Etgar Keret is one of the leading voices in Israeli literature and cinema. He is the author of five bestselling collections, which have been translated into twenty-nine languages. His writing has been published in the New York Times, le Monde, the Guardian, the Paris Review and Zoetrope. He has also written a number of award-winning screenplays, and Jellyfish, the first film that he directed -along with his wife Shira Geffen - won the Camera d'Or prize for best first feature at Cannes in 2007. In 2010 he was awarded the Chevalier medallion of France's Order of Arts and Letters.
"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
