"Life should have been sunny for Max Glickman, growing up in Crumpsall Park in peacetime, with his mother's glamorous card evenings to look forward to, and photographs of his father's favourite boxers on the walls. But other voices whisper seductively to him of Buchenwald, extermination, and the impossibility of forgetting." "Fixated on the crimes which have been committed against his people, but unable to live among them, Max moves away, marries out, and draws cartoon histories of Jewish suffering in which no one, least of all the Jews, is much interested. But it's a life. Or it seems a life until Max's long-disregarded childhood friend, Manny Washinsky, is released from prison. Little by little, as he picks up his old connection with Manny, trying to understand the circumstances in which he made a Buchenwald of his own home, Max is drawn into Manny's family history - above all his brother's tragic love affair with a girl who is half German. But more than that, he is drawn back into the Holocaust obsessions from which he realises there can be, and should be, no release."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

Do I give up on Jacobson? I loved all his earlier works then I got to the Henry one, which I just managed to finish. I gave up on An Act of Love and took 2 years to read this one. Will the original Howard please come back all is forgiven ( )

This novel just wasn't for me, despite being mostly set in north Manchester and so familiar places, I found the style of the novel very difficult. It seemed too verbose and meandering for my taste and although I continued to about page 250, I couldn't face the thought of another 200 pages of reading.
Kalooki is a card game Max's mother plays and the novel is set in the years after the war. Max is friends with Manny and the novel seems to be about their relationship.
There are funny moments, but these got a bit lost in the tedium. ( )

When Jewish novelists resort to writing about the Holocaust in the 21st century it seems so very obvious. This book is unashamedly obsessed, not just with not just Nazism but the chosen people it sought to extinguish - but just because it is knowingly obsessed doesn't make it any less trying. A weak plot and florid writing, combined with one of my least favourite topics; if this is Jacobson's masterpiece, I suppose he's not for me. ( )

Jacobson is an inventive and comic writer and so I felt something lacking in myself that I didn't finish this novel. Perhaps it is that his exuberant style overwhelms me at times ( )

I knew a fellow named Otto Kahn, who was a very rich man, and he gave a lot of money to the Metropolitan Opera House at one time. His close friend was Marshall P. Wilder, who was a hunchback. And they were walking down Fifth Avenue, and they came to a synagogue, and Kahn turned to Wilder and said, "You know I used to be a Jew". "Really?" said Wilder. "I used to be a hunchback."
