ever have someone tell you to stand up straight? look you in the eye when they're talking?

The Girl on the Fridge

The Girl on the Fridge
Etgar Keret
buy at amazon

occasionally, publishers send me books i don’t ask for, but that turn out to be pleasant surprises. humming “Shot in the Dark” right now. this is a nifty little collection of odd stories by the Isreali author Etgar Keret (The Nimrod Flipout). i’m digging it. the story “Hat Trick”, about a children’s magician who has lost his um, magic. instead of pulling rabbits out of his hat, he plucks dead bunnies and decapitated babies. i was rolling with laughter.
