Mordecai Richler #2

The second of three programs about Mordecai Richler- the brash, hugely talented and prolific Montreal writer.

Last time on the program, it was about his early days, his self imposed exile from Canada and his return to Montreal, as well as his early and ongoing literary success. And underscoring it all was his willingness to be contrary and opinionated. This time, the middle years, including a children's book that ended up being one of his best sellers. It was called Jacob Two-Two and the Hooded Fang, and told the story of a boy called Jacob (in real life also the name of one of Richler's children) who befriends the Hooded Fang, an ex wrestler.
