"This is a highly original collection of thought-provoking stories that both prod and soothe the reader, and range in style from Etgar Keret to Lorrie Moore. The characters are often in search of answers to life’s biggest issues— truth, love, identity, purpose—and sometimes even find them. More often, they grapple with loneliness and are filled with wistful regret. The prose is unadorned and straightforward, infused with a sane, world-weary, winking godliness. A must-read for anyone who enjoys well-crafted, unpretentious, and meaningful stories."—Evan Fallenberg, author of Light Fell and When We Danced on Water

Podcast
Read about author David Ehrlich and listen to a reading of ‘The Store ’ from Who Will Die Last read by John HaskellTablet Magazine

"David Ehrlich takes us into an Israel of fragile soldiers and all-powerful grandmothers, a country that confounds expectations and whose people live at the meeting point between meaning and absurdity. By turn heartbreaking and hilarious (and sometimes both at once), these stories are small epics for a post-mythical time. Only a writer in love with the story of Israel could have written such wonderful Israeli stories."—Yossi Klein Halevi, fellow, The Shalom Hartman Institute, Jerusalem
