The award-winning author talks about living life to the full like the 90-year-old lovers in his latest novel
From his loft high over Soho, Man Booker Prize-winning author Howard Jacobson speaks to JR’s Arts Editor Judi Herman about falling in love in your 90s, like the protagonists of his latest novel, Live a Little. He also reads an extract from the book, as well as discussing his passion for his “horrible” heroine and his dismissiveness of politics and politicians.
