Coming from Behindby Howard Jacobson
Sefton Goldberg, in his thirities, is trapped teaching English at Wrottesley Polytechnic College; he desperately wants the Disraeli Fellowship at Holy Christ Hall, Cambridge, but is also aware of his drawbacks as an urban Jew in a sea of Anglo-Saxons -- his dislike of beer, nature and sports.
