Foran's 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 General's Literary Awards,
the Giller Prize, the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, among others, as
well as many awards for his children's books. He also wrote
Oscar-nominated screenplays. His influence was larger than life in
Canada and abroad. In Mordecai, award-winning novelist and
journalist Charlie Foran brings to the page the richness of
Mordecai's life as young bohemian, irreverent writer, passionate
and controversial Canadian, loyal friend and deeply romantic lover.
He explores Mordecai's 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.
