Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374222436, Paperback)
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.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:54:32 -0400)
A collection of bite-sized satirical tales in which Kerrett covers a remarkable emotional and narrative terrain peopled by such characters as a man surprised by a pessimistic talking fish, a little girl who covets her friend's glittering eyes, and a faithful dog that won't disappear, even after being shot.
