BBC News - Howard Jacobson wins Booker Prize

Author and columnist Howard Jacobson has won the Man Booker Prize for his comic novel The Finkler Question.

Jacobson, who beat contenders including double winner Peter Carey, received the £50,000 prize at London's Guildhall.

Chair of judges, Sir Andrew Motion, described the 68-year-old author's book as "very funny, of course, but also very clever, very sad and very subtle".

It explores Jewishness through the lives of three friends - two of them Jewish and one who wishes he was.
