  • "<b>A satire in Swiftian vein, this is Howard Jacobson’s fifteenth novel and first hand grenade.</b> If Trump’s policy is to move fast and break things, then he has a competitor in Jacobson, who began <i>Pussyv </i>in the aftermath of Trump’s election victory and completed well before Trump’s catastrophic failure to repeal Obamacare… <b>It has all the qualities of a fleet response: undigested rage, whip-smart wit devastating fluency and an aim as straight as an arrow</b>… This is the story, savagely well told by <b>our greatest comic novelist</b>, of how we got in the state we’re in."
