J is a snarling, effervescent, and ambitious philosophical work of fiction that poses unsettling questions about our sense of history, and our self-satisfied orthodoxies. Jacobson's triumph is to craft a novel that is poignant as well as troubling from the debris. --Independent (UK)

Man Booker Prize-winner Howard Jacobson's brilliant and profound new novel, J, invites comparison with George Orwell's 1984 and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World (Sunday Times, London). Set in a world where collective memory has vanished and the past is a dangerous country, not to be talked about or visited, J is a boldly inventive love story, both tender and terrifying.
