Howard Jacobson is winner of the Man Booker Prize
Howard Jacobson's comedy about anti-Semitism, "The Finkler Question," won the $79,000 Man Booker Prize in London Tuesday, beating "Parrot & Olivier in America," by two-time winner Peter Carey and Emma Donoghue's popular "Room." Jacobson, 68, who remains far better known in his native England than in this country, has been a prolific writer of comic novels, mostly about Jews and Jewish identity, since 1983. Several have landed on the Booker long list.
