"To the Moon and Back" by Etgar Keret translated from the Hebrew by Sondra Silverston Originally published in the October 3, 2016 issue of The New Yorker.
I’ve come to enjoy the short work of Etgar Keret, His first story to appear in The New Yorker was “Creative Writing,” back in the first week of 2012. I loved that story, and it was very short at just four columns (see my thoughts here). His next story, “One Gram Short,” was a bit longer, but not much, and it was also excellent (see Betsy’s thoughts here). Here’s hoping this weeks is as good or better!
