Etgar Keret's new house - in Warsaw

How's this for a "...but we're still here story"? Etgar Keret has had a house built for him in Warsaw, coincidentally very close to where his mother (still alive) used to smuggle food in and out of the Ghetto for her family.

Read it and both weep and give a defiant yell to the world that appears to (at the very least) heartily dislike the collective us.

For one person it would be cozy (at best) but can you imagine someone with 4 or 5 kids in it. Or more than 1 cat?

No, Katie, I can't, but I suspect that for Keret it's as much an "I'm (or we're) still here" kind of statement and the size of the house is less important. The size (or lack of it) may even be part of the whole issue.

Cats? A place like this can handle 30 at least.
