Master short story writer Etgar Keret turns his hand to a longer tale, Kneller’s Happy Campers, which was recently turned into the cult film Wristcutters: A Love Story, starring Tom Waits and Shannon Sossamon.
"Etgar Keret's writing hits like a bullet. Kneller's Happy Campers is fast and bizarre and full of a fearless street-punk surrealism, as though Charles Bukowski is channelling the imagination of Lewis Carroll. The darkest fun I've read in ages" -- Matt Haig "Keret mixes the laconic style of Raymond Carver and the insane wit of Quentin Tarantino into his own particular, melancholy combination of themes... It's not just a story about people who have taken their lives, but rather a metaphor on how the post-ideological generation is trying to live and survive in this world" Spiegel "There is a subtle mix of innocence and awareness, of caustic irony and tender humour that emerges from this text, as well as from its brilliant author" Le Monde "I think he is a brilliant writer, entirely different from any other I know. He is the voice of the next generation" -- Salman Rushdie
