VASSANJI, M.G. Mordecai Richler. With an introduction by John Ralston Saul,series editor. (Toronto): Penguin Canada, (2009). First Printing. Pp. (8), ix-xiii,(1),1-236,(6). 8vo, black cloth with gilt and orange lettering to front and spine. A volume in the Extraordinary Canadians series. "Great artists inevitably mature to refashion the cultural map of their day. Mordecai Richler's imagination constantly returned to the 'ghetto' of his colonial city, the clamorous, enclosed world of his childhood. It inspired his acclaimed fiction, comical and entertaining and yet at the same time bearing the imprint of grim collective memories. His novels and his very presence -- even at a distance -- brought a much-needed tonic to English-Canadian literature." - from the dust jacket. Contents: 1. Always the Writer; 2. Origins; 3.
