Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jacobson is quite simply a master of comic precision…That the things he is joking about are so dark and dangerous makes the jokes even better. And it dawns on you that the book isn’t really just about being Jewish at all. It’s about being human.” Evening Standard (London)
“Howard Jacobson…is incapable of writing a predictable sentence…likely to be the funniest book published this year [with] prose sharper and brighter than any of his contemporaries.” Observer (London)
“Howard Jacobson’s tour de force…You don’t have to be Jewish to love this book, just human.” Guardian (London)
“Jacobson’s prose is pure pleasure—concise, markedly insightful, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny—and his message, ultimately, is a heartbreaker. An exceptional novel.” Booklist (starred review)
