Overview

One of North America's greatest novelists, essayists, and humorists, Mordecai Richler wrote brilliantly on subjects as diverse as New York, baseabll, Montreal, Paris, James Bond, family, and the Holocaust. As Adam Gopnik writes in his Introduction, "He was above all, and in everything he wrote, including his journalism, a real writer, not a show-off or time-server. He was not an artist who boasted of his sensitivities, but a writer, through and through, who hated everything pretentious and academic and fake in the literary world, yet who had an unshakeable reverence for literature."

Mordecai Richler Was Hereis the first major collection of his work since his death, featuring selections from his most memorable writing, including The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Barney's Version, and Joshua Then and Now, as well as family photographs, archival images, and cartoons by the inimitable artist Aislin. This book is a tribute both to the artist's skill and Montreal, the lively city that inspired him.
