Howard Jacobson won the Booker Prize in 2010 for The Finkler Question and he is widely regarded as one of Britain’s very greatest novelists. What Will Survive of Us is an original homage to love in later life and a provocative look at infidelity, desire and what is left when we strip away every layer. ‘A wonderfully wise, moving and heartfelt novel, a profound and vital book’, wrote William Boyd. ‘Let’s pause to consider Howard Jacobson’s comic elegance and precision… Just look at the way he makes the English language dance for us’ said The Spectator. This is an unforgettable love story about romance, shot through with Jacobson’s trademark wit and humour. It is Howard’s first appearance at the Borders Book Festival and we are honoured to have him as our guest.
