From the Publisher:
From Israel’s most popular and acclaimed young writer—“Stories that are short, strange, funny, deceptively casual in tone and affect, stories that sound like a joke but aren’t” (Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi)
 
Already featured on This American Life and Selected Shorts and in Zoetrope: All Story and L.A. Weekly, these short stories include a man who finds equal pleasure in his beautiful girlfriend and the fat, soccer-loving lout she turns into after dark; shrinking parents; a case of impotence cured by a pet terrier; and a pessimistic Middle Eastern talking fish. A bestseller in Israel, The Nimrod Flipout is an extraordinary collection from the preeminent Israeli writer of his generation.
Annotation:
Etgar Keret is one of Israeli's hippest and most popular storytellers, a writer who refuses to toe the line when it comes to issues of politics, religion, and violence. His mordant wit, his surreal aesthetic, and his goofy, badass, tragic scenarios are cranked to ten in THE NIMROD FLIPOUT, a collection of weird and wicked short stories.

Praise

"Some of Keret's scenarios...are almost too surreal, like dreams waiting to be deciphered, but the best make for a truly mind-bending trip." 4/7/2006
