    DescriptionWINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE Julian Treslove, a professionally unspectacular former BBC radio producer, and Sam Finkler, a popular Jewish philosopher, writer and television personality, are old school friends. Despite very different lives, they've never quite lost touch with each other - or with their former teacher, Libor Sevcik. Both Libor and Finkler are recently widowed, and together with Treslove they share a sweetly painful evening revisiting a time before they had loved and lost. It is that very evening, when Treslove hesitates a moment as he walks home, that he is attacked - and his whole sense of who and what he is slowly and ineluctably changes.

    the finkler question2

    leonie wells A well written book with quirky sense of humour but I struggled to keep engaged as the characters became more and more self obsessed with their jewishness I think this book was rather sad as the characters found themselves not even able to be honest to each other after a lifetime of friendship none of them knew who they really were or had learnt how to deal with life. by leonie wells

  • The Finkler Question3

    Judith Riseley Well written and quite amusing. The core question appears to be 'What makes one Jewish.' I suppose if I were Jewish I would have become more immersed in this book. The Gentile main character was very bland and unbelievable. by Judith Riseley
