Reviews

Alfred Kazin It comes off brilliantly.
The Washington Times It is time to recognize Mr. Richler as one of North America's most powerful novelists.
Chicago Tribune A rasping humor pervades the book....It burgeons with its special talent and a vulgar vitality.
The Washington Times A fast-moving, entertaining, and bawdy novel.
Los Angeles Times Funny in the biting, subversive manner of Joseph Heller and Philip Roth.
Minneapolis Star Tribune Duddy Kravitz [is] Richler's most famous creation.
The New York Times Book Review Richler has been praised for his clear-eyed vision and his realistic style.... The total effect is as brash and blatant as a sports car rally -- and as suggestive of power.
