Suddenly, a Knock on the Door

Etgar Keret, read by various narrators. Macmillan Audio, unabridged, four CDs, 5 hrs., $24.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-2694-5

An all-star roster of narrators masterfully performs the audio edition of Keret’s latest collection, which mixes humor, emotion, absurdity, morality, and humility. Each story in the collection brings a new narrator, including Robert Wisdom, Ira Glass, Miranda July, Ben Marcus, George Saunders, Michael Chabon, John Sayles, Stanley Tucci, and Willem Dafoe—just to name a select few. The varied stories offer skewed points of view on such everyday activities as ordering food, having coffee with a potential employer, and raising children. The result is a truly inspired series of performances and an utterly entertaining audiobook. Listening quickly becomes a compulsion. An FSG paperback. (Apr.)
