    This is a foul spirited and foul mouthed work from a writer who is normally shows us a very generous spirit and normally keeps his wit well within the bounds of good taste.There are simply too many excellent books to read in the Richler catalogue to justify spending any ...

    Yeah it s satire but I wouldn t be surprised if Richler low key believed some of this stuff.Also just because it s satire doesn t mean it s good and it ll age very quickly.

    Not having read The Acrobats and A Choice of Enemies , I would say that this is the weakest of Richler s novels It almost read as an excercise, a writing assignment that would flesh out some concepts and ideas for future brilliant novels It is surprising to me that it was published AFTER The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz , as it feels as an early effort, written in the 1950s by an aspiring novelist and published later, after the success of Duddy The plot is not fully coherent Chapter Not having read The Acrobats and A Choice of Enemies , I would say that this is the weakest of Richler s novels It almost read as an excercise, a writing assignment that would flesh out some concepts and ideas for future brilliant novels It is surprising to me that it was published AFTER The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz , as it feels as an...

    Wow That was unlike anything I ve ever read before The first time I ve ever read Richler and boy did I pick a doozie Absolutely nothing like I expected It s certainly dated and even in the context of satire, some of the language in here wouldn t fly today I suspect It surely doesn t shy away from shocking the reader and I both cringed and laughed noisily at various points in my read.I have no doubt some folks would be horribly offended by this book Others will see the in your face satire...
