Howard Jacobson in Conversation 活出真我:Howard Jacobson分享會

Howard Jacobson, Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Finkler Question, and one of “our funniest writers alive” (Allison Pearson) has written a wickedly observed novel of old age and new love. Live a Little follows the late-life romance of 90-somethings Beryl, who is forgetting everything, and Shimi who forgets nothing. This is a novel to make you consider all the paths not taken in life, and whether you could still change course. Anya Adair, Assistant Professor of English at the University of Hong Kong, joins Howard in conversation. In ENGLISH and available 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.
