Summary of Mordecai Richler Summary of Mordecai Richler Reviews for Mordecai Richler An Excerpt from Mordecai Richler

One of Canada's top novelists examines the life and work of another Canadian Great.

Both Richler and Vassanji are award-winning novelists who regarded themselves as outsiders in their respective societies—one a Jew in Quebec, the other an Indian in Tanzania who emigrated to Canada. Their experiences were vastly different, but their perspective as outsiders allows each a unique viewpoint. With narrative flair and surprising insights, Vassanji explores the life and artistic quest of the prolific Montreal satirist who died in 2001.
