520    Man Booker Prize-winner Howard Jacobson brings his 
       singular brilliance to this modern re-imagining of one of 
       Shakespeare's most unforgettable characters: Shylock 
       Winter, a cemetery, Shylock. In this provocative and 
       profound interpretation of "The Merchant of Venice," 
       Shylock is juxtaposed against his present-day counterpart 
       in the character of art dealer and conflicted father Simon
       Strulovitch. With characteristic irony, Jacobson presents 
       Shylock as a man of incisive wit and passion, concerned 
       still with questions of identity, parenthood, anti-
       Semitism and revenge. While Strulovich struggles to 
       reconcile himself to his daughter Beatrice's "betrayal" of
       her family and heritage -- as she is carried away by the 
       excitement of Manchester high society, and into the arms 
       of a footballer notorious for giving a Nazi salute on the 
       field -- Shylock alternates grief for his beloved wife 
       with rage against his own daughter's rejection of her 
       Jewish upbringing. Culminating in a shocking twist on 
       Shylock's demand for the infamous pound of flesh, 
       Jacobson's insightful retelling examines contemporary, 
       acutely relevant questions of Jewish identity while 
       maintaining a poignant sympathy for its characters and a 
       genuine spiritual kinship with its antecedent--a drama 
       which Jacobson himself considers to be "the most troubling
       of Shakespeare's plays for anyone, but, for an English 
       novelist who happens to be Jewish, also the most
