Jacobson plays Trump card

The Jewish Chronicle - - DIARY -

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.
