review 1: Like Jacobson's other Booker prize winner, "The Finkler Question," this novel is also a must-read. Unfortunately I mean that more in the sense of an academic exercise than an enjoyable experience. As in TFQ, Jacobson is dealing with the knotty issue of anti-semitism, but he does ...

review 1: Stream of consciousness narrative. I usually like English humor. It's more verbal than American humor but this was just empty word salad. The narrator/protagonist is narcissistic, detached and says and experiences nothing to draw you in. I couldn't get past the first 30 pages. Th...

review 1: "Whatever it is" is a collection of Jacobson's columns for the Independent newspaper.This was a joy to read – Jacobson has a beautiful way with words – mellifluous if you like. His topics are wide ranging - from menacing cyclists to porn for the Prince,from popular culture to pol...
