The Jewish Chronicle - - ARTS & BOOKS - Henry Good­man on Ra­dio 4

Ac­tor Henry Good­man reads a se­lec­tion of Is­raeli writer Etgar Keret’s beau­ti­ful short sto­ries all this week on Ra­dio 4. Keret’s witty snatches of ev­ery­day life are en­chant­ing and sur­real: the thwarted am­bi­tions of a bus driver, the boy who longed to join the cir­cus, the love of a young man for his as­ton­ish­ing shrink­ing par­ents. You can also catch Keret (and Good­man) in per­son at Jewish Book Week in Lon­don at the end of Fe­bru­ary. The Bus Driver who wanted to be God and Other Sto­ries, by Etgar Keret, Mon­day Jan­uary 29 to Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 2, 3.303.45pm, BBC Ra­dio 4; www. jew­ish­book­week.com
