Etgar Keret, Writer/Filmmaker
New Books Network 2020
Etgar Keret is a globally celebrated author and filmmaker who exposes the absurdity of daily life in our modern world, and through a Kafkaesque lens remind us that things ought to be better. Fly Already (2019) was rewarded with the 2019 National Jewish Book Award, and Jellyfish won in 2007 the Camera d'Or at Cannes. Keret’s unforgettable, heart-shattering and funny stories make us see that things should be otherwise and, in spite of historical and political roadblocks, can become better.
