Book Review: The Finkler Question – Howard Jacobson

The Finkler QuestionHoward Jacobson  The Finkler Question – Howard Jacobson

A beautifully written book on the Jews of today – caught between the horror of yesterday and the shame of today. The human story takes center stage though –through the three central characters – two Jews and one wannabe. The humor is superb. Treslove’s character, is particularly well etched. He is the protagonist –a weak guy, full of self pity – yet Jacobson manages to get the readers on Treslove’s side – by gently poking fun at him.

Recommendation: Read
