We congratulate Howard Jacobson on this remarkable achievement!

A profound, darkly comedic parable set in a future where collective memory has vanished following a historic catastrophe and one young couple’s love affair could have shattering consequences for the human race.

J by Howard Jacobson

With a sense of the dramatic sweep of Michael Ondaatje and the dystopian, literary sensibility of Margaret Atwood, Howard Jacobson’s J is an astonishing feat of fiction. Exquisitely written, imaginative, and terribly heartbreaking, J is the crowning achievement of a remarkable career.

Praise for Howard Jacobson:

“As the brightness of his brilliance is hard to look at, so is the darkness of his humor. I don’t know a funnier writer alive.”—Jonathan Safran Foer

The winner will be revealed on October 14th!
