Spotted: The Finkler Question


Well colo(u)r me impressed, as today I spotted a fellow Muni rider calmly sitting on one of several available seats squished up against the closed doors of the train by a mass of grumpy post-holiday humanity somehow managing to read a winner of this year’s Man Booker Prize!  Yes, we saw Howard Jacobson’s “The Finkler Question.” 

Being the culture-less yank that I am, I’ve never heard of it!  Any good?  I do like the title.  Very intriguing….suggests a complex problem that may or may not have a solution…like Poincare’s Conjecture…or Molyneux’s Problem…though hopefully less complicated.
