The New York Public Library will host a funny evening with Man Booker Prize-winning author Howard Jacobson tonight.
You can purchase tickets here. The video embedded above features Jacobson reading an excerpt from The Mighty Walzer while two people play ping pong.
Here’s more from the event description: “Being funny should go without saying if you’re a novelist, Jacobson insists. In conversation with Paul Holdengräber, Howard Jacobson will discuss why any novelist who doesn’t make you laugh is short-changing you.”
