Etgar Keret's literary top ten

Etgar Keret, author of the new book, Missing Kissinger, took the Pulp Net quiz.

A couple of his answers:
Best short story I’ve ever read

"Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka

Author I’d like to nominate for the Nobel Prize for literature

I think Kurt Vonnegut really deserved that prize, but had too much of a sense of humour for the Swedes to see him as a serious contender.
Read the other entries to Etgar Keret's literary top ten.

Etgar Keret has published four books of short stories, one novella, three books of comics and a children's book.

His book Missing Kissinger has been listed among the 50 most important Israeli books of all time.
