Free read Who's Sorry Now Howard Jacobson ´ 5 Free download Free download Who's Sorry Now æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free From the author of The Mighty Walzer winner of the Everyman Wodehouse Award for comic writingMarvin Kreitman the luggage baron of South London lives for women At present he loves four – his mother his. I had a hard time with the stars Did I like it or really like it I went with really because I really like Howard Jacobson s writing But did I really like Who s Sorry Now That I can t decideI feel I ve met the protagonist Marvin Kreitman before in Jacobsen s work Marvin is a nancy of a man who somehow manages to be a womanizer with mommy issues Again There is a pervasive theme in almost all of Jacobson s books concerning womanizing men who have Oedipal complexes and they all seem like men who have been emasculated one way or another by one thing person or another To put it bluntly I wouldn t fuck any of his protagonists Those themes along with infidelity and cuckoldry weave their way through Jacobson s newest novel as in his other works such as Zoo Time and The Act of Love Marvin loves multiple women he includes his wife mother and two daughters in this declaration but also includes several mistresses Most of the mistresses are somebody s mother as in old enough to be HIS mother Meanwhile he meets regularly with his old college chum Charlie who has never had a mistress only one woman in his life Charlie Charlie the wife is known as Chas and she and Charlie have what Charlie likes to call nice sex But as Charlie s eyes roam ravenously over every spot of female flesh that happens by it s clear that nice sex is no longer cutting itThe two men hatch a drunken plan to give Charlie a shot at one of Marvin s women Marvin is to choose whom he will share with Charlie for a night Although Marvin has in the past urged Charlie to explore when it hits home he has second thoughts They have always met under the same circumstances Marvin s heart is breaking in one way or another and Charlie is drowning in his desire for not nice sex Both men hold their discontent close to them like armor and Marvin suddenly doesn t want Charlie to be content The imbalance wouldn t suit Marvin one bit With the occurrence of an absurd accident another player is introduced to the mix along with Chas and Hazel Marvin s long neglected bitter wife What ensues is a crazed docu drama of confusion sex longing and disillusionment that leads both couples to a somewhat predictable but intolerable messAlways the humorist Jacobson s ability to secure the absurd and make it feel true is unsurpassed However this book lacks the poignancy some of his other work has shown Jacobson s humor is always off set by that signature poignancy and unfortunately he misses the mark slightly in Who s Sorry Now That said I could read his prose all day long and even if the culmination isn t five star uality the journey to the end is always a delicious treat
