A LITTLE LIGHT JACOBSON,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coming From Behind (Paperback)
A great introduction to Howard Jacobson. It is not too heavy, and is frequently very funny, as well as exercising all his familiar themes (although, as others have said, there is much less sex than usual). Some great characters and set-pieces and he effortlessly makes Sefton a sympathetic character. If you want to know why Jacobson is widely considered to be the UK's funniest writer, this is a good place to start.
