Reviews

"A joyous new novel... A life-affirming tale of late-flowering love... if we manage to live a little longer, we might have the privilege of enjoying more novels such as this one." * Sunday Times *
"Let's pause to consider [Howard Jacobson's] comic elegance and precision... Just look at the way he makes the English language dance for us... the characters, as they converse, striking sparks off one another." * Spectator *
"Brilliantly observed... No other novelist writing in Britain could dramatise this nonagenarian love story with greater verve and tenderness, while never forgetting that this is a resplendently comedic form." * Observer *
"[Howard Jacobson] is not one to let the catastrophe of old age get in the way of a good laugh, or a surprisingly tender love story... [Live a Little is] merrily bonkers... This book is alive. It pulses with warmth and intelligence, and, unusually for a novel about old age, it has a lot of style." * The Times *
"A master of the slightly dark comedy... Jacobson brings this little pocket of North London to life superbly, and his two ageing protagonists are wonderful creations, depicted with wit and compassion." * Tatler *
