The seven years between the birth of Etgar Keretâs 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. Etgarâs 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 Etgarâs three-year-old sonâs impending military service to the terrorist mind-set behind Angry Birds. Thereâs Levâs insistence that he is a cat, releasing him from any human responsibilities or rules. Etgarâs siblings, all very different people who have chosen radically divergent paths in life, come together after his fatherâs shivah to experience the grief and love that tie a family together forever. This wise, witty memoirâEtgarâs first nonfiction book published in America, and told in his inimitable styleâis full of wonder and life and love, poignant insights, and irrepressible humor.
