“A man is sitting in the room, all by himself. He’s lonely. He’s a writer. He wants to write a story. It’s been a long time since he wrote his last story, and he misses it… The man decides to write a story about the situation. Not the political situation and not the social situation either. He decides to write a story about the human situation, the human condition. The human condition the way he’s experiencing it right now.”
- From Suddenly A Knock at the Door, which Bezalel Stern discusses on our site in his essay, The Maturation of Etgar Keret.
