Join us for an evening in the company of Man Booker Prize-winning author Howard Jacobson to discuss his new novel Live A Little.
Told with Jacobson’s trademark wit and style, Live a Little tells the rare story of love in your nineties and is in equal parts funny, irreverent and tender. A novel to make you consider all the paths not taken, and whether you could still change course.
Here Jacobson will offer insights into how his new novel came about and just why he decided to write about finding love in later life.
Live a Little by Howard Jacobson is published by Jonathan Cape. Copies sold on the day can be signed by the author.
Jacobson has written fifteen novels and five works of non-fiction. He won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Award in 2000 for The Mighty Walzer and then again in 2013 for Zoo Time. In 2010 he won the Man Booker Prize for The Finkler Question and was also shortlisted for the prize in 2014 for his most recent novel, J. Interviewed by freelance journalist Tanya Gold, Jacobson will offer insights into how his new novel came about and just why he decided to write about finding love in later life.
