Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Finkler Question - Howard Jacobson. 'He should have seen it coming. His life had been one mishap after

another. So he should have been prepared for this one...' Julian

Treslove, a professionally unspectacular and disappointed BBC

worker, and Sam Finkler, a popular Jewish philosopher, writer and

television personality, are old school friends. Despite a prickly

relationship and very different lives, they've never quite lost

touch with each other - or with their former teacher, Libor Sevick,

a Czechoslovakian always more concerned with the wider world than

with exam results. Now, both Libor and Finkler are recently

widowed, and with Treslove, his chequered and unsuccessful record

with women rendering him an honorary third widower, they dine at

Libor's grand, central London apartment. It's a sweetly painful

evening of reminiscence in which all three remove themselves to a

time before they had loved and lost; a time before they had

fathered children, before the devastation of separations, before

they had prized anything greatly enough to fear the loss of it.

Better, perhaps, to go through life without knowing happiness at

all because that way you had less to mourn? Treslove finds he has

tears enough for the unbearable sadness of both his friends'

losses. And it's that very evening, at exactly 11:30pm, as Treslove

hesitates a moment outside the window of the oldest violin dealer

in the country as he walks home, that he is attacked. After this,

his whole sense of who and what he is will slowly and ineluctably

change. "The Finkler Question" is a scorching story of exclusion

and belonging, justice and love, ageing, wisdom and humanity.

Funny, furious, unflinching, this extraordinary novel shows one of

our finest writers at his brilliant best. Publikace: Finkler Question - Howard Jacobson. Julian Treslove, ein zurückhaltender Reporter und Sam Finkler, ein berühmter jüdischer Philosoph sind alte Schulfreunde. Trotz der langen Zeitspanne haben sie nie den Kontakt zueinander verloren - genau wie den zu ihrem Lehrer Libor Sevick. Der Abend, an dem sie sich zum Essen treffen wird zu einer Nacht voll bittersüßer Erinnerungen. Auf dem Heimweg wird Treslove brutal überfallen...Funny, furious, unflinching, "The Finkler Question" is a story of exclusion and belonging, justice and love, ageing, wisdom and humanity.
