Etgar Keret: Fly Already

Lesung & Gespräch I internationales literaturfestival berlin

Etgar Keret’s stories oscillate between fantasy and comedy; his characters grapple with problems of parenting and family, as well as memory and love. His texts explore, in an entertaining way, the inability to communicate and understand the world. »It’s Keret’s particular brand of brilliance that can simultaneously hold tragedy and comedy, and in such compact packages.« [Financial Times] Etgar Keret participates remotely. In cooperation with EXC 2020 Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective.

The conversation will be held in English.

The author reads from the original novel in Hebrew. A speaker reads from the German translation.
