Ballad of the Whiskey Robber tells the hilarious and improbable true story of Attila Ambrus, the Robin Hood of Eastern Europe. He's the onetime pelt smugger, goaltender (possibly the worst in the history of pro hockey), pen salesman, Zamboni driver, gravedigger, church painter, roulette addict, building superintendent, whiskey drinker, and native of Transylvania who's decided that the best thing to do with his time is to rob as many banks as possible.
Read by an all-star cast and featuring a bonus story special to the audio edition, Suddenly, a Knock on the Door is a one-of-a-kind audiobook.... Bringing up a child, lying to the boss, placing an order in a fast-food restaurant: in Etgar Keret’s new collection, daily life is complicated, dangerous, and full of yearning. In his most playful and most mature work yet, the living and the dead, silent children and talking animals, dreams and waking life coexist in an uneasy world.
"Spices of imagination behind the door..."
Author Etgar Keret is known for his uncanny ability to cover an incredible amount of ground in an extremely short story. His writing is at times funny, satirical, dark, and profound, and his narratives intertwine the abstract and the everyday in creative and surprising ways. In Grab the Cuckoo by the Tail, a short story from Keret's Suddenly, A Knock on the Door, Uzi attempts to cheer up his friend Dedi, depressed after the end of a failed romance, by convincing him they will get rich by investing in the stock market.
