    This is such a short novella that it reads almost like a script to the movie Wristcutters A Love Story There's a lot very similar which makes the movie a true adaptation At the same time the movie offers a bit of extra details that aren't included in the novel Hollywood classically tacked on a happy ending to

A clever short story on the futility of human existence given with excellent doses of humor and tenderness The film Wristcutters A Love Story 2006 is based on this book Another version has also been released as a graphic novel under the title Pizzeria Kamikaze The author creates a parallel universe where those who have committed suicide go The scars from their wounds remain on their post mortem bodies but that does not prevent them from living working traveling and falling in love Even dying again 11 Kneller Tom Waits Wristcutters A Love Story 2006 graphic novel Pizzeria Kamikaze Mordy Raphael Kneller Mordy Kurt Kurt Cobain Nirvana J Nasser 70 Dante Alighieri Etgar Keret

Bullet wounds broken necksthose who have over dosed are known as 'Juliets'When Mordy our hero discovers that his girlfriend from his life before has also 'offed' herself he sets out to find her and so follows a strange adventureFull o. Keret s whimsical deadpan style really appeals to me but this novella while uirky and filled with his trademark irreverent black humour didn t work as well for me as his short stories and non fiction but is different in feel to his fiction I kept feeling that it needed to be either shorter or a lot longer Still an interesting read

F the weird and wonderful characters and the slightly surreal twist of events that we've come to expect from Etgar Keret this novella is full of humour and comic flashes but it is also wistful longing for a better world and perfect lo. It s very hard to put into words this incredibly odd story It s set in a world that s just like ours but is slightly worse and full of people who have commited suicide People walk around with holes in their heads gruesome scars along their neck and arms and blue faces all according to how they did it It s a very uniue tale about Mordy a man who killed himself after the breakup between him and his girlfriend Desiree When he discovers that Desiree too has commited suicide and now resides within the same plain as him he recruits his only friend Uzi to go on an adventure to find her Along the way they pick up a hitchhiker named Leehee who s searching for the People In Charge With Leehee and Uzi behind him Mordy finds that even in the dreary afterlife there s still a chance for happinessThe overall mood of the book is dark and moody the comedy very morbid and dry but still as funny as slapstick It brings a uniue perspective to the idea of life and the meaning of it even for those who aren t alive any Mordy is a very relatable character speaking just like someone you d meet off the street with a very twisted sense of humor about the situation He s a fairly miserable guy but hopes for happiness and love even when the opposite stares him in the face and everyone tells him to give it up Despite his flaws and his dismal demeanor he s everyone who has ever felt depressed or sad in life and embodies the hope for something betterKneller s Happy Campers has been adapted into two other formats One is a graphic novel titled Pizzeria Kamikaze based on the fact Mordy works at a pizzeria of the same name in the novella with illistrations by Asaf Hanuka The second adaption is a movie renamed Wristcutters A Love Story which has been changed a lot from the book to fit American audiences such as changing the main characters names All versions of this novella are amazing and I seriously recommend you check them ALL out
