Description

Self-described by the author as "the most Jewish novel that has ever been written by anybody, anywhere," Howard Jacobson's Kalooki Nights has received glowing critical accolades from every major publication in London. It is a strikingly profound testament to the truth that, even after enduring 5,000 years of hardships, the Jewish people still maintain an unbeatable sense of humour.

Professional reviews

"Jacobson's entertaining novel features Max Glickman and his bizarre worldview, which seems woefully outdated. Max is a Jewish cartoonist seeking refuge from a persecution complex and a series of anti-Semitic, and Gentile, ex-wives. The story picks up steam when Max's friend, Manny Washinsky, is released from prison and Max is hired to develop a film based on Manny's life. Funny at times, head-shaking at others, the novel benefits from narrator Steven Crossley's narration, which is even more wry and sarcastic than Jacobson's own words. Crossley reads with a tone that appears to mock Max's own words. Despite this, Crossley rises above the material. A bit long, the novel will not bore, but for some listeners an abridged edition may be preferable. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
