Howard Jacobson at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

We welcome back a heavyweight of literary fiction to talk about his new book with Jackie McGlone in this event filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival. In Live a Little, Booker Prize winner Howard Jacobson takes a sideways look at love and the end of life. Beryl is 90-something and losing her memory, while Shimi is healthy but remains haunted by trauma; together they dream of romance and redemption before their time is up. A typically sharp and tender work from the critically acclaimed author.
