Foran''s book is the first major biography with access to family letters and archives: 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.

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 Charles 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.
