Mordecai: The Life & Times by Charles Foran

Forans book is IT: the definitive, detailed, intimate portrait of Mordecai Richler, the lion of Canadian literature, and the turbulent, changing times that nurtured him. It is also an extraordinary love story that lasted half a century. The first major biography with access to family letters and archives. Mordecai Richler was an outsized and outrageous novelist whose life reads like fiction. Mordecai Richler won multiple Governor Generals Literary Awards, the Giller Prize, the Commonwealth Writers Prize, among others, as well as many awards for his childrens books. He also wrote Oscar-nominated screenplays. His influence was larger than life in Canada and abroad. InMordecai, award-winning novelist and journalist Charlie Foran brings to the page the richness of Mordecais life as young bohemian, irreverent writer, passionate and controversial Canadian, loyal friend and deeply romantic lover. He explores Mordecais distraught childhood, and gives us the portrait of a marriage- the lifelong love affair with Florence, with Mordecai as beloved father of five. The portrait is alive and intimate -warts and all.
