Described as Britain’s “funniest living writer”, Howard Jacobson explored his passion for Jews and Jewishness in his latest novel, The Making of Henry (2004). Here he wondered about the nature of this passion for Jews as characters in life and literature, and spoke about the process of “arguing with myself in the matter of how Jewishly I should write”
