A British Jewish author won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for Fiction for a comic book about what it means to be Jewish today. Howard Jacobson, who was shortlisted for the prize this year for the first time, was named the winner of the $80,000 prize Tuesday night for "The Finkler Question." The book is about "love, loss and male friendship, and explores what it means to be Jewish today," according to a news release from the prize committee.
