    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.

    Brief, intense, painfully funny, and shockingly honest, Etgar Keret's stories are snapshots that illuminate with intelligence and wit the hidden truths of life. As with the best writers of fiction, hilarity and anguish are the twin pillars of his work. Keret covers a remarkable emotional and narrative terrain - from a father's first lesson to his boy to a standoff between soldiers caught up in the Middle East conflict to a slice of life where nothing much happens.

    We are being watched. That this statement no longer shocks is itself shocking. Post-Snowden, we know that the government - everywhere - has been reading our emails, listening to our phone calls, and watching whatever we do on the Internet. The only thing concealed is the nature of our watchers. In Watchlist, some of today's most prominent and promising fiction writers from around the globe respond to, reflect on, and mine for inspiration the surveillance culture in which we live.

    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 obscure and the everyday in creative and surprising ways.

    Cheesus Christ, a short story from Suddenly, A Knock on the Door, is no exception. In just ten minutes, narrator Dave Eggers brings us from a man dying in a fast-food restaurant, to the inner thoughts of the restaurant’s manager and later to those of the company’s tortured CEO, then on tour through a doctor’s tragic past, and onto the butterfly effect, all in an enlightening, amusing, and strangely cohesive way. Cheesus Christ will at once leave you thoroughly satisfied and hungry for more from Etgar Keret.

    Negli ultimi sette anni, Etgar Keret ha avuto molte ragioni per stare in pensiero. Suo figlio Lev è nato nel bel mezzo di un attentato terroristico a Tel Aviv. Suo padre si è ammalato. Tremende visioni del presidente iraniano Ahmadinejad che lancia invettive antisemite lo perseguitano. E Devora, l'implacabile venditrice di un call center, sembra determinata a seguirlo anche all'altro mondo.
