30 Sep Howard Jacobson: Live A Little
Sunday 10th November
‘Jacobson, now 76, is not one to let the catastrophe of old age get in the way of a good laugh, or a surprisingly tender love story…a shrewdly observed jeu d’esprit about creeping senectitude and blossoming romance… pulses with warmth and intelligence, and, unusually for a novel about old age, it has a lot of style’ – Johanna Thomas-Corr, The Times
Don’t miss the chance to hear from one of the UK’s pre-eminent comic novelists, Howard Jacobson, the Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Finkler Question. Howard’s latest novel, Live A Little, is an irresistibly funny account of falling in love at the end of your life – a novel to make you consider all the paths not taken, & whether you could still change course.
‘Live a Little actually gathers pace as it goes along, the characters, as they converse, striking sparks off one another… This is a novel rich in correspondences, and also in wisdom, and a kind of audacity.’ – Nicholas Lezard, The Spectator
Venue: The George Farha Auditorium, Dulwich College, SE21 7LD
