Drunken Nights On The TownBut It S Not Just The nights on the townBut it s not ust the of Mordy s everyday afterlife it s the story of a uest he sets out on with Uzi once he learns that the girl he killed himself over has ALSO killed herself He believes it means they re obviously MFEO and has decided not to stop until he finds herI want to talk and talk and talk about this book but it s difficult because it s really only a novella To say any would give the entire thing away and I don t want to do that to you It s possible that my attempts not to spoil things are futile because there s a movie Wristcutters A Love Story from 2006 which has a kickass soundtrack Gogol Bordello and a fantastic cast but there were a lot of changes made to try to translate the narrative for the screenDon t worry I m not going to go on a rant about how the BOOK IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE MOVIE ZOMG but it kind of is The ending of the book while not as give up candy for life cos it s so sweet as the movie is in my mind anyway superior and rather hopefulI am doing a terrible ob of talking about this book Just go read it because it
short and s worth your timeStop arguing with me A clever short story on the futility of human existence given with excellent doses of humor and tenderness The film Wristcutters A Love Story 2006 is based on this book Another version has also been released as a graphic novel under the title Pizzeria Kamikaze The author creates a parallel universe where those who have committed suicide F the weird and wonderful characters and the slightly surreal twist of events that we've come to expect from Etgar Keret this novella is full of humour and comic flashes but it is also wistful longing for a better world and perfect lo. F his life or so he thinks killed herself and ended up in the same world as his he and Uzi go on a road trip to find her That s also where they meets short and
KellerI Honestly Don T Wanthonestly don t want go into too much detail because it s such a tiny book that I feel like I ll spoil a lot if I say In every chapter which aren t than four pages tops Mordy finds himself in a
different pickle if I may His adventures are fun especially hispickle if I may His adventures are fun especially his Uzi but sometimes you feel weird for finding it funny because you know they killed themselves Here everyone wants to know what you know for a living but in that world they want to know how you did it There are all sorts of people who did it in different ways and some of them take it way too personally if asked how Remind you of anybody ExactlyWhat I got from this book is miracles happen when you least expect them and I love it Also my sister has told me the movie Wristcutters was based on this book I ll have to watch that again because it s been a long time since I did and I can t honestly say I remember much of it This was my first time reading an Edgar Keret book and I definitely would like to read of his work An unintelligible but funny book August 2017 I also read the French translation What else could I find I am now also in possession of the original Hebrew but cannot say I could understand it DLEI wanted to read the graphic novel based on this book by Keret but when I went to the library I realized I had ordered the German translation and I read it I also enjoyed itI was a little confused by the changing of the names and now I am looking forward to the sunny day when I am going to be able to read this book in Hebrew and see which translation was right I am not sure I understood a thing but I liked this book nevertheless Originally posted hereEverybody hates him except Uzi I think there s this thing that after you off yourself with the way it hurts and everything and it hurts like hell the last thing you give a shit about is somebody with nothing on his mind except singing about how unhappy he is I mean if you gave a flyin fuck about stuff like that you d still be alive with a depressing poster of Nick Cave over your bed instead of winding up hereEtgar Keret s Kneller s Happy Campers manages to be funny and depressing at the same time It s the story of Mordy s life after death the events that follow him through the time after he kill. Bullet wounds broken necksthose who have over dosed are known as 'Juliets'When Mordy our hero discovers that his girlfriend from his life before has also 'offed' herself he sets out to find her and so follows a strange adventureFull .
This is the third of Keret s books that I ve read and every time I start one I don t know know how the chaos of the first pages will ever resolve by the end of his characteristically short tales But every time I turn the last page they seem to make it scraping in under some chain link gate closing on a strip mall comic book storefront as the caffeinated characters dance like extinguishing florescent bulbs inside I enjoy every word he writes After I read a sentence it seems like it should have done nothing a It s very hard to put into words this incredibly odd story It s set in a world that s ust like ours but is slightly worse and full of people who have commited suicide People walk around with holes in their heads gruesome scars along their neck and arms and blue faces all according to how they did it It s a very uniue tale about Mordy a man who killed himself after the breakup between him and his girlfriend Desiree When he discovers that Des Keret s whimsical deadpan style really appeals to me but this novella while uirky and filled with his trademark irreverent black humour didn t work as well for me as his short stories and non fiction but is different in feel to his fiction I kept feeling that it needed to be either shorter or a lot longer Still an interesting read
This is such a short novella that it reads almost like a script to the movie Wristcutters Ais such a short novella that it reads almost like a script to the movie Wristcutters A Story There s a lot very similar which makes the movie a true adaptation At the same time the movie offers a bit of extra details that aren t included in the novel Hollywood classically tacked on a happy ending to the movie while the book s ending is truer to the point of the book the pointlessness of Mordy s hell and how the things you want only happen after they are no longer important I saw the movie first and was curious when I realized it was based on a bookI like the sort of disjointed clipped way of storytelling the author has blurb of the book really does explain what it is a strange dark but funny tale A love story in essence but there s a lot than that in it Mordy after killing himself find himself in the afterlife world which really is a lot like ours The difference is that people walk around baring the wounds of how they killed themselves bullet holes in their bodies and such At the bar he discovers Mordy meets Uzi and they become friends And then when Mordy finds out the love Kneller's Happy Campers is a strange dark but funny tale set in a world very much like our own but it's an afterlife populated by people who have killed themselves many of them are young and most of them bear the marks of their death.
