He lives in London.Review:
"Howard Jacobson is one of the funniest writers alive... His writing pulsates with nerve and edge; it is colossal in its comic precision; at its best it simply tears you apart" * The Times * "Lucky Jim undated... Witty, observant, clever, a first-rate entertainment and something more besides" * Guardian * "Jacobson's humour is unashamedly savage and his jokes as sharp as a switch-blade... comic vitriol worthy of Evelyn Waugh" * Sunday Express *
