Hilarious, heartbreaking, provocative and affecting - Howard Jacobson's irresistible journalism reveals the Man Booker Prize-winning novelist in all his humanity. From the tiniest absurdities to the most universal joys and desolations, Jacobson writes with a thunder, passion and wit unmatched.
Just as did his previous volume, Whatever It Is I Don't Like It, this glorious, unputdownable collection will delight, entertain, challenge and move.
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
