Mordecai RichlerBook - 2009
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.
