The Israeli writer whos worked in film, illustration, animation, and radio, is a storyteller in all senses of the word.

Like a conman, hell promise you a simple story and then the next thing you know your emotional reserves have been completely emptied. Its a literary bait and switch, and hell get you every time.Here, in “Todd,” a story that also challenges the boundaries between literature and reality, Etgar directly engages with the wonderful deception of fiction itself. The titular friend asks the narrator, who resembles Etgar—an Israeli short story writer who frequently appears on NPR—to write a story thatll help him get girls into bed.

The narrator must then explain that writing doesnt work that way: A story isnt a magic spell or hypnotherapy, the narrator claims, and yet that is exactly what happens here.About Recommended Reading:Great authors inspire us. But what about the stories that inspire them? Recommended Reading, the latest project from Electric Literature, publishes one story every week, each chosen by a great author or editor. In this age of distraction, we uncover writing thats worth slowing down and spending some time with. And in doing so, we help give great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve.About the author:Etgar Kerets writing has been published in The New York Times, Le Monde, The Guardian, The Paris Review, The New Yorker, and Zoetrope among other publications.

More than 40 short films have been made based on his stories. His work has been translated into 31 languages and published in over 35 countries. He received the Chevalier Medallion of France’s Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2010. His short story collections include The Bus Driver Who Wanted to Be God & Other Stories, The Nimrod Flipout, The Girl On The Fridge, and most recently, Suddenly, a Knock on the Door.
