Once Ima explained to the zoo-keepers and security guards that our father just died, we left the zoo and never came back. I saw Fridge Girl at the edge of the room, dancing with another girl, swaying to music from somebody’s cell-phone and touching each other’s hips, leaning in and whispering and laughing. In normal times I should have shot him down (he was already seated) but I never had a gun…and normal times seem to be fiction. In Walking Shiv’ah, a daughter takes her demanding, crippled mother in a home-made rickshaw on a difficult and dangerous seven-day trek to find out which of the family’s soldier sons has been killed in the war.

He slept with a little light on, which I got used to somehow, but he still had nightmares frequently. Many are bittersweet, but they can be hilarious as well: 'The Sephardic Survivor' made me laugh out loud despite being about a Holocaust survivor.

When she wasn’t looking, Shoni leaped up over the glass railing of the exhibit and liberated the fish, which squirmed in his arms, flapping around and jerking wildly, scales flashing and glinting in the afternoon light. The Man Who Sold Air in the Holy Land, by Omer Friedlander, is a wonderful collection of short stories set in the Middle East centring on Israel, Gaza, the West Bank and all the stories reflect the troubled and complicated history of the region. She held out her hand, which he took, and led him away as if to look for a nearby bamboo forest tucked away behind a synagogue.Jaffa Oranges was my favourite story - a story of friendship, of being swept up by propaganda, a story of a homeland and perhaps of regret. I remember the parents being cool and generous when they started but later the family got rich and greedy. He has taught at Berlin private schools for more than ten years, performed at various poetry slam events, curated an experimental television program on the OKB and appeared on stage as part of a series of audiovisual readings along with other authors, musicans and visual artists.

Sometimes, he used it entertain, telling wild stories, outlandish tales, but other times he cut everyone around him, his words jagged and rough, a stone in our ears.Set in present-day Israel, the short stories are often grounded in the various conflicts that mark the country’s history, but what they really revolve around are human and universal experiences.
