Solomon Gursky was Here

Moses Berger, son of the failed poet L.B. Berger, was very young when he first heard the name that would become both quest and curse to him … Solomon Gursky. Shattering the facade of lies the Gursky family has built around themselves, Moses becomes obsessed with discovering the secrets of Solomon’s startling, almost mythical, life. Exploring the boundaries of imagination with a new and daring scope, Mordecai Richler mesmerizes us with his creation of an unconventional Arctic, Jewish, financial and alcoholic history; peopled with the funniest and most endearing rogues, heroes and heroines we are ever likely to meet.
