House Needs a Sandwich
Construction is finally underway on The Thin House, the impossibly thin house (just over two feet wide at its narrowest) in Poland, where the Israeli author Etgar Keret will live briefly before passing the space on to other creative people, potentially spurring a claustrophobia-art renaissance. It makes you wonder why they don’t build it first and then swing it in like a coin into a slot, but I am no architect. (“Put glue on the sides?”) Here’s the rendering from way back when, and Keret’s latest short story collection, Suddenly, a Knock on the Door, remains great.
