內容簡介

精彩的故事,說故事高手。──The New York Times

作者對世界的看法,以及古怪的安慰,讀來會心一笑,充滿閱讀樂趣。
一部現代生活的新興寓言。

以色列知名作家Etgar Keret,收錄他極受歡迎的23則短篇故事,作為第一本在美國發表的試金石,贏得許多喝采。將以色列這個富涵文化、卻又戰爭不休的國家背景融入許多邊緣人物的故事,一個想要成神的公車司機、空姐愛上了一名乘客、一個女人通往地獄的大門……荒謬、死亡、正義、愛情、背叛,儘管故事可能不幸,但作者用輕描淡寫的筆觸,套上一個夢幻般、異想天開的日常現實──彷彿昆汀塔倫蒂諾的暴力,卡夫卡的不知所措的淒美導向。

幸福從來不是讓人一夜暴富,但微小的希望和幸運,比比皆是。閱讀本書,即一種日常微小卻幸運的幸福感。

Israel's hippest bestselling young writer today, Etgar Keret is part court jester, part literary crown prince, part national conscience. The Bus Driver Who Wanted to Be God gathers his daring and provocative short stories for the first time in English.Brief, intense, painfully funny, and shockingly honest, Keret's stories are snapshots that illuminate with intelligence and wit the hidden truths of life. As with the best comic authors, hilarity and anguish are the twin pillars of his work. Keret covers a remarkable emotional and narrative terrain-from a father's first lesson to his by to a standoff between soldiers caught in the Middle East conflict to a slice of life where nothing much happens. Bus Driver includes stories from Keret's bestselling collections in Israel, Pipelines and Missing Kissinger, as well as Keret's major new novella, "Kneller's Happy Campers," a bitingly satirical yet wistful road trip set in the afterlife for suicides.
