Congratulations Howard Jacobson

Friend and supporter of The Reader Organisation, Howard Jacobson, was last night awarded the 2010 Man Booker Prize for fiction for his comic novel, The Finkler Question.


To celebrate, how about a look at a featured poem from two years’ ago: Howard reading Wordsworth in a Soho restaurant whilst having dinner with Jane and Phil Davis.

Here’s what Howard recently said in support of our Reading Revolution:

Everything The Reader Organisation touches turns to gold.  A Little, ALOUD is wonderful – a luscious, challenging enticement to read and hear and share the love of doing both. We don’t read with the eye only.  Until we hear literature we don’t possess it.  This anthology is more than a collection of good writing, it wakens the ear to what good writing is.
