About the Author
Mordecai Richler was born in Montreal, Quebec, in 1931. Raised there in the working-class Jewish neighbourhood around St. Urbain Street, he attended Sir George Williams College (now a part of Concordia University). In 1951 he left Canada for Europe, settling in London, England, in 1954. Eighteen years later, he moved back to Montreal.
Novelist and journalist, screenwriter and editor, Richler, one of the most acclaimed contemporary writers, has spent much of his career chronicling, celebrating, and criticizing the Montreal and the Canada of his upbringing. Whether the settings of his fiction are St. Urbain Street or European capitals, his major characters never forsake the Montreal world that shaped them. His most frequent voice is that of the satirist, rendering an honest account of his times with care and humour.
Richlers many honours include two Governor Generals Awards and innumerable other awards for fiction, journalism, and screenwriting.
Mordecai Richler died in Montreal, Quebec, in 2001.

Troy Parfitt is the author of War Torn: Adventures in the Brave New Canada
This book tells the story of Jacob Two-Two, who is two times two times two years old, and who has to repeat everything twice because he is the youngest and most insignificant of his large and opinionated family. He embarks upon his first almost grown up adventure. Going to the grocers to get two pounds of tomatoes for his father.
The grocer takes umbrage at Jacob repeating himself all the time ,and this is where the book slips into a fantasy world in which Jacob is hauled off to prison on Slimer's Island for being rude to grown ups, and where he meets his nemesis, The Hooded Fang. Will Jacob be rescued by the Fearless O'Toole and the Intrepid Shapiro, of Child Power fame? We shall see...
Funny, clever and always a delight to read.
