Summary
Live a Little is a wickedly observed story of old age which follows the lives of two nonagenarians. Beryl Dusinbery, like Scheherazade, is telling the stories of her many husbands and love affairs to her two carers, whilst Shimi Carmelli mourns the death of his estranged brother and avoids the amorous attentions of the Widow Wolfsheim, as his childhood shame comes back to haunt him. Redemption comes in the way of love. - Goodreads.com
Summary
Told with Jacobson’s trademark wit and style, Live a Little is equal parts funny, irreverent and tender – a novel to make you consider all the paths not taken, and whether you could still change course
