What if you had the power to travel to another world, one where lies have become truths, where loved ones could be replaced with the yank of a zipper, or one where a magical goldfish grants wishes?

Etgar Keret's work is frequently featured on the weekly radio show This American Life. In addition to fiction, he's known for his work in film and TV.
