Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unashamedly autobiographical novel from Howard Jacobson, telling the hilarious and heartbreaking story of one man's coming of age in 1950s Manchester. "Poignant, moving, hilarious...laugh-out-loud funny...the sort of book that might change your life" "Observer". "There are few novelists today who can imbue the trifles of life with such poetry" "Independent".

Synopsis:

From the beginning, Oliver Walzel is a natural - at ping-pong; he can chop, flick and half-volley like a champion. At sex he is not a natural, but with tuition his game improves. This is the story of coming-of-age in 1950s Manchester.

Synopsis:

Howard Jacobson's most recent books include No More Mister Nice Guy (1998) and Seriously Funny.
