Description

'Astute, funny, elegant meditation on identity . . . full of energy with an alluring Parisian glow' Diana Evans, author of Ordinary People

'Generous, urbane, zestful . . . a Francophile's feast' Rob Doyle, author of
Threshold

Larry Frost, a British pharmacologist living in Paris, is exuberant, charismatic, wildly opinionated. He's also convinced he's Jewish - or at least he's long had his hopes. But his search for what he believes is his true identity produces more questions than answers.

In early 2015, following the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo , Larry is joined by his sceptical older cousin, Nick Newman. Divorced, separated from his son and desperately trying to understand his own place in the world, Nick is drawn inextricably into Larry's slipstream as they walk the fractured, uneasy, magical streets of Paris.

Then, in November, terrorism strikes the city again. With Paris and the cousins still reeling from the trauma, Larry receives the information he's urgently been seeking: a long-held family secret that will change both their lives forever.

Set against a backdrop of extremism, nationalism and the resurgence of antisemitism, Jacob's Advice is a timely exploration of identity, race, family and the inescapable nature of the past.
