The Finkler Question

The Finkler Question (2010)
By Howard Jacobson


In The Finkler Question, Jacobson tells the story of three friends–two recently widowed Jewish men and one unmarried Gentile. After reuniting for an evening of reminiscing, one of the men is attacked on his way home and his whole sense of who and what he is slowly and ineluctably changes. The Finkler Question is a scorching story of friendship and loss, exclusion and belonging, and of the wisdom and humanity of maturity.

Fun Fact: The Finkler Question is a comic novel.
