Howard Jacobson

Manchester Literature Festival presents…                              

Is it possible to find love in your nineties? In Howard Jacobson’s hilarious new novel Live a Little, nonagenarians Beryl Dusinbery and Shimi Carmelli reflect on their lives. Beryl’s problem is that she’s forgetting things – particularly about her lovers – while Shimi remembers everything and clings to a moment of shame from his childhood. Can they find healing and redemption in each other?

A much-loved Manchester writer, Howard is the author of 16 novels including the Booker Prize-winning The Finkler Question, and won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for comic literature with Zoo Time.
