In this beguiling collection of short stories and memoirs, first published in 1969, Mordecai Richler looks back on his childhood in Montreal, recapturing the lively panorama of St. Urbain Street: the refugees from Europe with their unexpected sophistication and snobbery; the catastrophic day when there was an article about St. Urbain Street inTime;Tansky's Cigar and Soda with its "beat-up brown phonebooth" used for "private calls"; and tips on sex from Duddy Kravitz. Overflowing with humour, nostalgia, and wisdom,The Streetis a brilliant introduction to Richler's lifelong love-affair with St. Urbain Street and its inhabitants.
