Kalooki Nights - Howard Jacobson


This took me ages to read and wasn't really worth it in the end. A man blames all his troubles on being Jewish when clearly they are due to his misogyny and selfish personality. Perhaps that was the key to the satire but it took a long time to get there.

  1. I read this (mostly at 4/5am - during Matilda's sleep is for losers period). I found it hard to get in to. I assumed because I was severely sleep deprived but maybe not... I seem to be always reading Jewish things when I'm sleep deprived. Didn't he just win the Booker or something? x
