About the Author: Howard Jacobson

Profile of Howard Jacobson in The New York Times“The book's appeal to Jewish readers is obvious but like all great Jewish art — the paintings of Marc Chagall the books of Saul Bellow the films of Woody Allen — it is Jacobson's use of the Jewish experience to explain the greater human one that sets it apart Who among us is so certain of our identity Who hasn't been asked What's your background and hesitated even for a split second to answer their inuisitor Howard Jacobson's The Finkler uestion forces us to ask that of ourselves and that's why it's a must read no matter what your background”— David Sax NPR.
