Live a Little

Howard Jacobson, Jenni Frazer

Jewish Book Week 2020

Howard Jacobson speaker
Jenni Frazer chair

Nonagenarian Beryl Dusinbery, forgetter of her own children and tormentor of her two long-suffering carers, meets the sprightly Shimi Carmelli, last of the eligible bachelors of North London. Shimi is prized for his ability to do up his own buttons, speak without spitting and walk without the aid of a frame.

Prize-winning author Howard Jacobson has written a characteristically funny and wickedly observed novel about falling in love toward the end of your life.


Howard Jacobson is a multi-award-winning writer of novels and non-fiction, as well as a regular contributor to major newspapers and journals, including a regular column for The Independent. He won the Man Booker Prize for The Finkler Question in 2010.

Jenni Frazer‘s award-winning career in journalism spans over 30 years. She has interviewed many major celebrities and is a media commentator on UK radio and TV.
