Here’s another delightful article about Etgar Keret and Sami El-Youssef’s new book, Gaza Blues. The collaboration came about when El-Youssef, a Palestinian writer based in London, read Keret’s work and called him. Keret agreed immediately.
“I wanted to do something, but ‘something’ is usually to sign a petition that you have already signed 500 times before. We wanted to make our own country, in a book if not on land,” Keret told BBC News Online.
The book isn’t out yet in the U.S., unfortunately.
