Gaza Blues: Different Stories
Two writers, Israeli Etgar Keret and Palestinian Samir El-youssef, have engaged in a challenging and provocative artistic collaboration, producing a book of short stories and a novella exploring different aspects of a fraught and complex situation.

All of Keret's collections have been best-sellers in Israel and have been translated to high acclaim around the world - into seventeen languages so far - and now, for the first time into English in the UK.
