Howard Jacobson

A brilliant comic writer with serious literary credentials, Howard Jacobson is one of Britain’s greatest living novelists. A background in academia furnished Jacobson with many of the comic archetypes that have graced his fiction, most notably in his debut Coming From Behind, a campus novel published in 1983. Many of Jacobson’s novels explore the author’s Jewish heritage and upbringing; both The Mighty Walzer, which won the 2000 Bolinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for comic fiction, and the Booker Prize-winning The Finkler Question, are rooted in wickedly observed recreations of the Jewish community. Other novels include Who’s Sorry Now?, Shylock is My Name and Zoo Time, another recipient of the Wodehouse Prize for comic fiction.
