Interview with Shanghai Daily

"Known as a best-selling short story writer, rare today, Keret says he had never deliberately chosen this form.
“Some people see writing as a journey from point A to point B. I couldn’t do that. I can’t plan and organize ahead to write a novel. For me, writing is like surfing. I start and then the characters carry me to wherever and whenever the story ends. It just so happens that they end as short stories,” he explains."
