9789650707866: ha-Kaitanah shel Kneller (Hebrew Edition)

Etgar Keret is dreaming of a more perfect and beautiful world. This novella can be read as a clever parody, full of humor and comic flashes, yet also wistful, longing for a better world and perfect love. The hero, Hayim, commits suicide and goes to the place where all suicides end up. He soon finds a job in a pizzeria and makes friends. This posthumous world of the suicides is remarkably like ours: there are Jews and Arabs, junk food and Polish food like Mother`s, but it is also possible to perform small miracles there. For example, Hayim is "dying" to make a miracle and meet his girlfriend, Desir?e, who committed suicide not long after he did. His search for Desir?e takes him on a colorful, picaresque journey, full of gripping encounters. The climax is the longed-for meeting with Desir?e and the Messiah, who promises to show his followers the way to a better world. Needless to say, the Messiah goofs and lets them down, and Hayim loses Desir?e for the second time. An incurable optimist, he keeps longing and hoping.
