Jacobson plays Trump card
THE election of Donald Trump may have one silver lining; it has prompted a new book from Howard Jacobson due out next month.
The author usually takes a couple of years to write a book but the outcome of the American presidential contest so fired him
from the cover of the new Jacobson up that the next day he picked up his pen and produced a new novella within weeks.
It is a “ferocious fairy story” about a character called Prince Fracassus in the Republic of Urbs-Ludus, who has “no manners, no curiosity and few words” but aspires to make his country great again. The book is entitled Pussy.
