Product Description

Review

“The most versatile and prolific Canadian writer of his time.”
–Robert Fulford

“[Richler’s] words land on the pages like manna, he is patriarch of the cutting line and everything he touches turns into a good read.”
London Free Press

“He is a ringmaster, making his performers do dazzling backflips without missing a beat.”
Time

“Richler has a style which can drip irony, and is unique and memorable.”
Edmonton Journal

“There is no other writer…who can so deftly deploy pure dialogue to create such rich atmosphere of period and place.…He is such a terrific storyteller.…”
–Montreal Gazette

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mordecai Richler is one of the greatest modern writers, and his Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz is a masterpiece; however, A Choice of Enemies falls short of being brilliant. It is, never-the-less, a very good book. Richler presents a great cold war story of divided and shifting loyalties. Richler also makes an insightful commentary about Canadian and European cultural and intellectual life.

Not the Mordecai Richler Novel March 9 2014
By Matthew C. Dion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a copy of "A Choice of Enemies" by Mordecai Richler. Mordecai Richler's name is on the cover of the book, but the book is actually a reprint of a 1917 title called "Defence and Foreign Affairs" by Z.A. Lash. No connection to Mordecai Richler whatsoever. IT is a Nabu reprint and it is not clear how the Richler name and title got associated with this book. Someone is careless or crazy.
