The Narrator: As I wrote above, ‘the death’ is the narrator of this book. I know you are imagining a dark, hooded shadow speaking from the elevated height with a shallow voice. I had that image too but that disappeared as the book progressed. Philip Roth’s connection to his New Jersey roots and Jewish cultural heritage are much stronger.

    Book Club: Shylock is my name Man Booker Prize-winner Howard Jacobson brings his singular brilliance to this modern re-imagining of one of Shakespeare’s most unforgettable characters: Shylock Winter, a cemetery, Shylock.
