Belling the Cat
Essays, Reports, and OpinionsBook - 1999
"More than forty years of scribble, scribble, scribble, and I have been sued only once..." But this collection of essays is no less a pleasure to read for all that. Mordecai Richler is an exuberant essayist, with a combative wit and sharp eye, regularly offending some, endearing himself mightily to others, and always hugely entertaining. Like all great satirists, he is passionate about the world in which we live; it's that appetite for life and friendship, his love of sanity and common sense as much as his hatred for sacred cows, that lies at the heart of this irresistible book.
