The seven years between the birth of Etgar KeretÃ¢ÂÂs son and the death of his father were good years, though still full of reasons to worry. Lev is born in the midst of a terrorist attack. EtgarÃ¢ÂÂs father gets cancer. The threat of constant war looms over their home and permeates daily life.
What emerges from this dark reality is a series of sublimely absurd ruminations on everything from EtgarÃ¢ÂÂs three-year-old sonÃ¢ÂÂs impending military service to the terrorist mind-set behind Angry Birds. ThereÃ¢ÂÂs LevÃ¢ÂÂs insistence that he is a cat, releasing him from any human responsibilities or rules. EtgarÃ¢ÂÂs siblings, all very different people who have chosen radically divergent paths in life, come together after his fatherÃ¢ÂÂs shivah to experience the grief and love that tie a family together forever. This wise, witty memoirÃ¢ÂÂEtgarÃ¢ÂÂs first nonfiction book published in America, and told in his inimitable styleÃ¢ÂÂis full of wonder and life and love, poignant insights, and irrepressible humor.
