EN SMAKEBIT PÅ EN SØNDAG #25 SUDDENLY, A KNOCK ON THE DOOR
"What animal are you?" my son asks the German, and I quickly translate into English. "I'm not an animal," she laughs, running her long fingernails through his hair. "I'm a monster. A monster that came from across the ocean to eat pretty little children like you." "She says she's a songbird," I translate to my son with impeccable naturalness. "She says she's a red-feathered song-bird, who flew here from a faraway land."

Etgar Keret er en forfatter fra Isreal som skriver stort sett noveller. Jeg digger ham, han er en favoritt. Suddenly, A knock on The Door er hans siste novellesamling som kom ut på engelsk i 2012.
