Only in one of Etgar Keret’s marvelously imaginative short stories can a bus driver with a social-minded ideology, an assistant cook with a sleeping disorder and blissful Happiness all converge.
Etgar reads a story which is as heartfelt as it is hilarious. This piece originally aired back in 2016, as part of one of our most popular episodes, Stop That Bus!
In April 2020, during the early weeks of the pandemic, we hosted Etgar for a Facebook Live event. We invite each and every one of you to join our members-only Facebook Community. You’ll immediately become part of a vibrant group of Israel Story fans, and will also be able to watch – or rewatch – the entire conversation with Etgar. But for those who prefer to listen, we bring you a much shorter, and edited, version of that chat.
