Reviews, News & Interviews:

Jacobson is one of the great sentence-builders of our time. I feel I have to raise my game, even just to praise ... In short, he is one of the great guardians of language and culture - all of it. Long may he flourish. -Nicholas Lezard, Guardian 

Yes, Jacobson is an entertainer ... And he does indeed entertain, but in a way that stimulates rather than simply amuses. - Sunday Telegraph 

An acutely observed collection of occasional pieces that pick at absurdist life and reveal him to be a quiz, a cultural critic gifted with precise comic timing. -The Times
