Booker Prize winning author Howard Jacobson joins Robin Morgan in the Audible Studios to discuss Shylock is my Name, a novelization of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice.
"Looking forward to 'reading' Howard Jacobson"
The winner of the 2010 Man Booker Prize, Howard Jacobson, brims with life in this collection of his most acclaimed journalism. From the unusual disposal of his father-in-law's ashes and the cultural wasteland of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to the melancholy sensuality of Leonard Cohen and desolation of Wagner's tragedies, Jacobson writes with all the thunder and joy of a man possessed. Absurdity piles upon absurdity, and glorious sentences weave together to create an hilarious, heartbreaking and uniquely human collection.
