THE BUS DRIVER WHO WANTED TO BE GOD & OTHER STORIES
I have definitely become an admirer of Etgar Keret's writing. I recently picked up his collection THE BUS DRIVER WHO WANTED TO BE GOD & OTHER STORIES (The Toby Press, 2004) and I find it outstanding. It's as touching and funny as can be.
I agree with the words on the back of this collection: "Brief, intense, painfully funny, and shockingly honest. Keret's stories are snapshots that illuminate with intelligence and wit the hidden truths of life."
To sample Keret's work, here are some of his stories published online:

I will certainly be purchasing other Keret collections.
