Audie Award Nominee, Multi-voiced Performance, 2013

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. Overflowing with absurdity, humor, sadness, and compassion, the tales in Suddenly, a Knock on the Door establish Etgar Keret declared a genius by The New York Times as one of the most original writers of his generation.

    " Liked it better than The Girl on the Fridge, but The Nimrod Flipout: Stories is still the best "

    " Odd, hilarious, and haunting little stories. They lingered with me in ways I couldn't possibly explain ("see, his soul turns into a guava, and it's just unbearably terrifying to imagine and I keep picturing myself as a trembling guava and it's keeping me up nights" - just doesn't capture it) "

    " Uneven. Some of the short short stories are imaginative and poetic, but even the good ones are too clever and self conscious for their own good "
