Having only a partial sense of the Merchant of Venice story - alright, I confess to not having read it (although I did once watch the latter half of the Pacino/Shylock film version!) - I came to buy this novel purely on the strength of my longstanding enjoyment of Howard Jacobson's work, both his novels and his weekly column in the Indy. I was not disappointed. As with most of Mr J's books, the day after finishing it, I began reading it again. Freed from having to keep in mind who each character is in relation to the others, the second read allows me to just immerse myself in the writing and the marvellously funny, sharp, penetrating dialogues that always seems to reveal layers of meaning within the human and relational themes. A crackingly good read, which has certainly inspired me to watch the entire Pacino movie; and who knows, I might even surprise myself by reading the Shakespeare version!

An interesting story. It helps to know The Merchant of Venice, for the references and there are obviously parallels between the two. As a gentile, I found the exploration of Jewishness thought provoking and educational.

***** An excellent read. Well- written and amusing. Up to Jacobson's usual high standards and to the high standards set by the other authors in this series of books re-imagining Shakespearean tales

In many ways the best of the Hogarth Shakespeare reworkings. Jacobson knows this play inside out; his novel is full of fresh insights about it as he explores back stories and...Read more
