Sefton Goldberg, in his thirties, is trapped teaching English at Wrottesley Polytechnic College; he desperately wants the Disraeli Fellowship at Holy Christ Hall, Cambridge, but is also aware of his drawbacks as an urban Jew in a sea of Anglo-Saxons -- his dislike of beer, nature and sports.

About the Author:

Howard Jacobson is the author of four works of nonfiction and several novels, including The Finkler Question, which won the Man Booker Prize; The Mighty Walzer, which won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Award for comic writing; and Who's Sorry Now?which was long-listed for the Booker Prize. He has a weekly column for The Independent and regularly reviews and writes for The Guardian, The Times, and The Evening Standard. Jacobson has also done several specials for British television. 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 *
