MOBI Howard Jacobson ç ç Shylock is my Name eBook ↠ Shylock is ePUB ´ Profile of Howard Jacobson in The New York Times“The book's appeal to Jewish readers is obvious but like all great Jewish art — the paintings of Marc Chagall the books of Saul Bellow the films of Woody Allen — it is Jacobson's use of the Jewish experience to explain the greater human one that sets it apart Who among us is so certain of our identity? Who hasn't been asked What's your background and hesitated even for a split second to answer their inuisitor? Howard Jacobson's The Finkler uestion forces us to ask that of ourselves and that's why it's a must read no matter what your background”— David Sax NPR

    MOBI Howard Jacobson ç ç Shylock is my Name eBook ↠ Shylock is ePUB ´ shylock free, name book, Shylock is kindle, Shylock is my Name ePUBThis is a book I've wanted to read for a long time although I didn't realize it was part of the Hogarth Shakespeare project to commission modern novelists to retell ShakespeareHoward Jacobson has plucked forth Shylock breathed new life into him and given him another turn upon the stage including a chance to finish unfinished business in Act Five In this book he appears in chilly England to help and support Simon Strulovitch who finds himself stuck in a dilemma similar to Shylock's in A Merchant of Venice Don't get mad get even an idiom not a uote not in the sense of a pound of flesh; no way but just turning things the other way around That's what happens here Most work on antisemitic stereotypes and thinking involves exploring and setting it forth very necessary very important but doesn't turn things aroundTwo other writers I've read who deal specifically with Shylock are Philip Roth in Operation Shylock A Confession and Stephen Gree
