This title is the winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2010 and the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize. "The Finkler Question" is a scorching story of friendship and loss and of the wisdom and humanity of maturity. Funny, furious, unflinching, this extraordinary novel shows one of our finest writers at his brilliant best. Julian Treslove and Sam Finkler 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. Now all three are recently widowed, in their own way, and spend sweetly painful evenings together reminiscing. Until an unexpected violent attack brings everything they thought they knew into question. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines more

Review quote

"Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2010, this is an unflinching, mocking, argumentative and funny novel about love, loss and middle-aged male friendship that through its main protagonists, Sam Finkler, Julian Treslove and Libor Sevick, explores what it means to be Jewish today. Steven Crossley is the dazzling narrator." Sue Dobson, Choice Magazine (audiobook review) "The richness is simplified by the dazzling performance of the narrator, Steven Crossley." The Spectator (audiobook review)"show more
