Howard Jacobson gives us another hilarious portrait of a difficult man, this one sixty-year-old Henry, neurotic, Jewish, alone, and waiting to die. (Are you laughing yet?) Jacobson is a genius, an irresistible story-teller whose sentences cry out to be shared, savored, cherished. The Making of Henry is, of all things, a romantic comedy, though its hero is about as unlikely a candidate for love and marriage as has ever been imagined for the genre. Jacobson always makes me glad to be in his company; in this book, for a change of pace, he also offers a happy ending.

Of course I like this story because it shows me what all writers know or should know....what makes humans tick. The characters held my interest right to the end of the book. And any writing describing the psychology of the individuals through their actions makes an interesting story for me....Jacobson at his best.

Well, I love Hiward Jacobson so I enjoyed Henry. Can't help but feel some of it was autobiographical. Henry really is a flawed character, weak and lacking go but I found myself warming to him anyway!
