Shortlisted for the 2014 Man Booker PrizeShortlisted for the 2014 Goldsmiths PrizeSet in the future - a world where the past is a dangerous country, not to be talked about or visited - J is a love story of incomparable strangeness, both tender and terrifying. Howard Jacobson, one of Britain's greatest novelists and winner of the 2010 Man Booker prize, has written a novel which 'may well come to be seen as the dystopian British novel of its times'. (John Burnside, Guardian)Two people fall in love, not yet knowing where they have come from or where they are going., Kevern doesn't know why his father always drew two fingers across his lips when he said a word starting with a J. It wasn't then, and isn't now, the time or place to be asking questions. Ailinn too has grown up in the dark about who she was or where she came from., On their first date Kevern kisses the bruises under her eyes. He doesn't ask who hurt her. Brutality has grown commonplace., They aren't sure if they have fallen in love of their own accord, or whether they've been pushed into each other's arms. But who would have pushed them, and why?Hanging over the lives of all the characters in this novel is a momentous catastrophe - a past event shrouded in suspicion, denial and apology, now referred to as What Happened, If It Happened. J is a novel to be talked about in the same breath as Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World, thought-provoking and life-changing., It is like no other novel that Howard Jacobson has written.

Críticas:

"A mighty novel." (Observer)

"Remarkable... May well come to be seen as the dystopian British novel of its times" (Guardian)

"Thrilling and enigmatic" (New York Times Book Review)

"Snarling, effervescent and ambitious... Jacobson’s triumph is to craft a novel that is poignant as well as troubling" (Independent)

"Jacobson...goes from strength to strength." (William Leith Evening Standard)

"Very little about Jacobson’s circuitous romance-cum-murder mystery is straightforward – other than its originality and its devastating brilliance." (Stephanie Cross Daily Mail)

"A dystopia that invites comparison with George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World" (Sunday Times)

"Mystifying, serious and blackly funny." (Max Liu Independent on Sunday)

"To say J is unlike any other novel Jacobson has written would be misleading: the same ferocious wit runs throughout... That said, comparisons do not do full justice to Jacobson’s achievement in what may well come to be seen as the dystopian British novel of its times." (John Burnside Guardian)

"A snarling, effervescent and ambitious philosophical work of fiction... Jacobson’s triumph is to craft a novel that is poignant as well as troubling." (James Kidd Independent)
