From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Mordecai Richler CC January 27 July 3 ) was a Canadian author, Academy Award -nominated screenwriter and essayist. A leading critic called him "the great shining star of his Canadian literary generation" and a pivotal figure in the country's history. His best known works are The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz Barney's Version , and the Jacob Two-Two children's stories. Richler's uncompromising opinions on contemporary Canada easily matched, and sometimes exceeded, the satirical sting of his fiction.

He graduated from Baron Byng High School . Richler then enrolled in Sir George Williams College (now Concordia University ) to study English but dropped out before completing his degree. He moved to Paris France at age nineteen, intent on following in the footsteps of a previous generation of literary exiles. Richler returned to Montreal in 1952, working briefly at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, then moved to

TYPEFACE DESIGNED IN MEMORY OF MORDECAI RICHLER This morning in Toronto at a gathering of friends and media it was announced that a typeface has been commissioned and designed in memory of Mordecai Richler, the esteemed Canadian author of books including The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, St. Urbain’s Horseman, Solomon Gursky Was Here , and Barney’s Version . Mordecai Richler passed away on July 3 rd of this year. The font was jointly commissioned by The Giller Prize and Random House of Canada in consultation with the Richler family. The tribute is unique. Never before has a font been commissioned by a Canadian cultural institution from a Canadian designer in honour of a Canadian and while several fonts bear the names of famous books or authors, those associations were made post-facto. Commissioning a font as a tribute to a contemporary writer is unprecedented in recorded type history.

L’idea esotica dell’Europa ispirata dagli scrittori americani come Hemingway e Miller lo spinsero a cercar fortuna oltreoceano. Part¬ per l’ Europa , destinazione Parigi . L’ Europa al contrario del Canada offriva uno scenario culturale molto pi¹ aperto e fertile nel quale avrebbe potuto cominciare la sua carriera. I primi tempi a Parigi furono difficili ma dopo sole tre settimane gli furono pubblicate tre brevi storie sulla piccola rivista Points.
A Parigi fece parte di un ristretto gruppo di aspiranti scrittori nordamericani tra i quali Allen Ginsberg e Terry Southern . Continu² a scrivere numerose storie, ma nessuna di queste venne mai pubblicata, cos¬ dopo due anni decise di partire per la

Richler struggled with the manuscript for seven years, at one stage shelving it in favour of Cocksure , a satire written in a fraction of the time. Cocksure
To savage the age, Richler cut straight into its pop heart: the movie industry. Cocksure
Richler knew the world he was satirizing, having observed and worked in it since shortly after his arrival in England. From a lowly reader for a studio who had made a quick study of the craft by buying a collection of screenplays by Graham Greene, he advanced to doctoring existing scripts, including a makeover of the landmark 1959 film Room at the Top

Mordecai Richler is a man of few words when he is speaking, that is. He is one of those artists who would prefer his work to speak for itself. At least, that was the impression I got when I spoke to him in late 1998. Barney's Version , his first novel in ten years, had just been released in paperback and Belling the Cat , a collection of journalistic essays had just been published by Knopf/Random House. On the phone from his hotel room in Toronto, Richler was curt and abrupt but still had many intriguing things to say about writing. Kirman: Barney's Version is your tenth novel. How has your process of writing changed between the time you wrote your first novel and now? Richler: The process hasn't changed, but the writer has developed, I hope. I still get up every morning and go to work.

    "Canada is not so much a country as a holding tank filled with the disgruntled progeny of defeated peoples. French-Canadians consumed by self-pity; the descendants of Scots who fled the Duke of Cumberland; Irish, the famine; and Jews, the Black Hundreds. Then there are the peasants from Ukraine, Poland, Italy and Greece, convenient to grow wheat and dig out the ore and swing the hammers and run the restaurants, but otherwise to be kept in their place. Most of us are huddled tight to the border, looking into the candy store window, scared of the Americans on one side and of the bush on the other."
    "My enduring feeling about Ren© L©vesque is that if he had chosen to hang me, even as he tightened the rope round my neck, he would have complained about how humiliating it was for him to spring the trapdoor. And then, once I was swinging in the wind, he would blame my ghost for having obliged him to murder, thereby imposing a guilt trip on a sweet, self-effacing, downtrodden Francophone."
    "So far as one can generalize, the most graciouis, cultivated, and innovative people in this country are French Canadians. Certainly they have given us the most exciting politicians of our time: Trudeau, L©vesque. Without them, Canada would be an exceedingly boring and greatly diminished place."
