Korte verhalen. Verschenen bij Strangers Press. Vertaler: Moshe Gilula.

This chapbook features two short stories. In one, a father and son, barely on speaking terms, meet for the first time in years in a television studio for a live broadcast to discuss a book the son has written about their failed relationship. Their artfully rendered alienations from and frustrations with each other speak of the widening generational gap we are all experiencing.

In the other, a troubled voyeur watches from his window as people come and go from a local massage parlour while contemplating his life. These compelling, well-wrought characters draw the reader entertainingly into their strange and heart-breaking lives.
