Exceptionally well written book. The story is fascinating, and it was great to learn so much about the author of many great books. It is a real page turner, and when I finished it I was sad it was over. Deserves all the prizes it won! I would recommend it to every Canadian, whether they've read his works or not.

Exceptionally well researched. Saw the movie of "Duddy" but never read any of Richler's books. However, I am now looking forward to reading all his books now. I enjoyed every page of the 600 plus pages and was sorry to come to the end.
