PDF Howard Jacobson ☆ Zoo Time eBook ¸ ☆ 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?
