A good novel about success and what it means to the writer. MR was a good novelist, and the book has had many good reviews over the years. ( )
  DinadansFriend | May 9, 2014 |
This creatively constructed novel has the reader travel from Canada to England to Spain on Joshua Shapiro's journey through life. Intelligent and intellectual, it also recounts Jewish history but does a great job of giving voice to various characters, poor and rich, young and old, Christian and Jewish... a veritable fresco of humanity. Richler uses biting humour to bind it all together. A delightful and thought-provoking novel. ( )

Lay your sleeping head, my love,
Human on my faithless arm;
Time and fevers burn away
Individual beauty from
Thoughtful children, and the grave
Proves the child ephemeral:
But in my arms till break of day
Let the living creature lie,
Mortal, guilty, but to me
The entirely beautiful.
W.H. Auden
For old Ted Kotcheff,
young Ted Allan,
and Miss Nina Bourne
