Even Barney Panofsky's friends tend to agree that he is 'a wife-abuser, an intellectual fraud, a purveyor of pap, a drunk with a penchant for violence and probably a murderer'. But when Barney's sworn enemy threatens to publish this damning verdict, Barney is driven to write his own memoirs, rewinding the spool of his life, editing, selecting and plagiarising, as his memory plays tricks on him - and on the reader. Barney slides from crisis to success, from lowlife to highlife in Montreal, Paris and London, his exploits culminating in a final outrageous scandal.
Born in Montreal, Mordecai Richler is the author of nine novels, numerous screenplays, children's books, essays and journalism, and has been twice shortlisted for the Booker Prize - for St. Urbain's Horseman and Solomon Gursky Was Here, which was also awarded the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. He lived in London during the sixties adn now lives with his wife in his native Quebec.
