Ulminating in a shocking twist on Shylock’s demand for the infamous pound of flesh Jacobson’s insightful retelling examines contemporary acutely relevant uestions of Jewish identity while maintaining a poignant sympathy for its characters and a genuine spiritual kinship with its antecedent a drama which Jacobson himself considers to be “the most troubling of Shakespeare’s plays for anyone but for an English novelist who happens to be Jewish also the most challenging?. This is an intelligent informed and brilliantly written engagement with Merchant it approaches the play thematically rather than strictly following the plot line although there s lots of that too and manages to be both inside and outside the play at the same time In a bold move Jacobson has his own modern Jewish protagonist with a troublesome daughter meet Shylock yes that Shylock in a local cemetery where he s speaking to his long dead wife Leah and takes him home The two men bond over what to do with Jewish daughters how to deal with lost wives and discuss what it means to be Jewish in a transhistorical way The other half of the book offers a modern update on the PortiaAntonioBassanio plot and makes lots of lovely knowing gestures the unpleasant edge to all these characters their vapid and sometimes deliberate prejudices the triangular nature of their relationship Jacobson s writing is wonderful sometimes sparkling sometimes diamond hard and vicious What he has done here is to bring the humour back to the story something that has become increasingly difficult in relation to the original play for post Holocaust generations though contemporary Israeli theatre companies have done a fine job with this issue His take is acutely informed by modern scholarship but it s done in a subtle and unobtrusive way I especially liked the moments when Shylock is interrogated about his intentions in the play a nice way of hooking this back to the original while still maintaining a critical distance This is my first Jacobson and I loved loved his affinity with language the way he chooses his lexicon with precision and attention to nuance and the playful texture this gives to the book I found the first half of the story brilliantly engaging and couldn t stop reading it the second half slows down becomes a bit muddled and laboured as it struggles with the pound of flesh the transaction of the rings all the same an excellent response to reception of and re writing of Shakespeare s play to both bring out its modern relevance and to send us back to the original with another perspective

About the Author: Howard Jacobson

Profile of Howard Jacobson in The New York Times“The book's appeal to Jewish readers is obvious but like all great Jewish art — the paintings of Marc Chagall the books of Saul Bellow the films of Woody Allen — it is Jacobson's use of the Jewish experience to explain the greater human one that sets it apart Who among us is so certain of our identity Who hasn't been asked What's your background and hesitated even for a split second to answer their inuisitor Howard Jacobson's The Finkler uestion forces us to ask that of ourselves and that's why it's a must read no matter what your background”— David Sax NPR
