Kalooki nights by Howard Jacobson

Fixated on the crimes that have been committed against his people, Max Glickman is drawn into the family history of an old childhood friend. It leads him to one conclusion – there can be, and should be, no release from his Holocaust obsessions.

Review by Shipton Bellinger WI

Only 2  of 10 liked this book, many hardly starting it let alone finished. Writers do make the exploration of a social group into good novels bit I feel Jacobson failed to engage with his readers. A pity
