The Death of Eli Gold is a comedy, a thriller, and a meditation on love, death, aging, sex, America and fame. Inspired by Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, John Updike, Norman Mailer and Arthur Koestler, it is both a hymn to, and a critique of, that generation of writers whose greatness gave them a license to disregard the damage they caused all around them, especially to their women and children. David Baddiel told us about his literary heroes, making people laugh about religion, and writing fiction.
