Reviews

Praise for The Finkler Question: 'The depth of human understanding and lightness of touch combine in beautiful and compelling ways. It is all that it seems and always more than it seems: plangent, forthright but subtle, always melancholy and funny' * Sir Andrew Motion *
'A real giant, a great, great writer' * Jonathan Safran Foer *
'Another masterpiece ... How is it possible to read Howard Jacobson and not lose oneself in admiration for the music of his language, the power of his characterisation and the penetration of his insight?' * The Times *
'Brilliant ... The greatest novelist working in Britain today' * Mail on Sunday *
