The Mighty Walzer Free download ↠ 5 Waxman fellow member of the Akiva Social Club Table Tennis Team and stalwart of the Kardomah coffee bar his game improves. If you just told me what this book was about I m not sure I would have thought that I was going to like it as much as I did After all at this point I m pretty tired of coming of age stories And I know exactly zilch about ping pong and have exactly negative desire to learn Nevertheless I loved this book Loved it I laughed out loud not on every page but often enough In fact i am still laughing when I think of a few of the things in it that cracked me up Yet the end almost made me cry As a result because I am a sucker for the hilarious yet bittersweet I pretty much now have an immense unreuited crush on Howard Jacobson

review The Mighty Walzer

The Mighty Walzer Free download ↠ 5 Jekyll and Mr Hyde he can chop flick half volley like a champion At sex he is not so adept but with tuition from Sheeny. Howard Jacobson is a very funny man a British man who is Jewish or vice versa I suppose He has written this delightful yet poignant coming of age novel featuring Oliver Walzer as the protagonist and the narrator The Mighty Walzer is a nickname Oliver Walzer deprecatingly gives himself as he looks at his life from the far end of the experience He begins with a laugh outloud funny description of his parents and both the maternal and paternal sides of the family Both sides have very definite physical and psychological characteristics His description of his dad as a young man is absolutely hilarious and allows him to illustrate the illusion of grandiosity that characterize the Walzer menIn Oliver s younger years his environment is dominated by females since his dad is away at war As a result he is incredibly withdrawn and uiet but as he grows a little older he unabashedly shares with his readers his secret life in the bathroom creating his own porn by cutting and pasting the faces of his female relatives into racy magazines he has acuired on the sly He is disgusted with himself in retrospect but his description of this activity is trust me hilarious He channels a middle school age boy like nobody s businessOn the occasions when he is not in the locked bathroom he obsesses with developing his skills at ping pong having found a ping pong ball in a nearby pond His paddle replacement in his formative years is his leatherette bound copy of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde He has no table no net just the wall the ball and his trusty book His skills improve remarkably but he is too shy to play with others til his dad takes him to the Jewish social center Awkwardly he makes friends with the other fringe dwelling boys who find their outlet in ping pongThere are so many Yiddish words that one is tempted to get a YiddishEnglish dictionary except for the fact that the context clues are very helpful in translation This book is funny to an English speaking gentileI can only imagine how side splitting it must be to the Yiddish speaking JewThis book was published first over 10 years ago in Great Britain but since Mr Jacobson won the Man Booker prize in literature in 2010 for a recent novel The Finkler uestion his books are finding new life and a new audience in the United StatesIf you are in the mood for a funny coming of age novel set in Manchester England in the 1950 s or perhaps looking forward to reading ping pong strategy skills competition and euipment discussed by an author who knows his stuff this just might be the book for you Jacobson is an excellent and entertaining writer

The Mighty Walzer Free download ↠ 5 From the beginning Oliver Walzer is a natural at ping pong Even with his improvised bat the Collins Classic edition of Dr. The Mighty Walzer is a book about love sex and ping pong in Manchester written with Jacobson s witty wordplay wry humour and abundant energy An excellent funny engaging book I would recommend this to fans of early Philip Roth some of John Irving Peter Carey or Gary Shteyngart Well worth a read especially if you liked any of his other work I would also recommend Kalooki Nights and of course Booker winning The Finkler uestion which despite all the hullabaloo is not really a comic novel at all Jacobson just can t help being funny You should also see him read if you ever get the chance as brilliant and funny in person as he is on the page
