About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The street by Mordecai Richler.

Description:

First Edition. Fraying to bottom spine edge. Small price sticker partially removed by previous owner from front free page. No markings in book. Binding tight, text clean. Scuffed DJ with nicks and tears. With this collection of semi-autobiographical memoirs, Mordecai Richler evokes the neighborhood---the Jewish ghetto of St. Urbain Street---that he knew as a boy in Montreal. Woven in with their stories are the author's clearheaded reminiscences of his gang of friends, including the irrepressible Duddy Kravitz. The colorful landscape of their growing up ranges from Tansky's Cigar and Soda Store, where truckers and peddlers come to swap jokes and neighborhood regulars come to use the beat-up brown phone booth, to the summer cottages of the Laurentians.

About this title:

Synopsis: "Among the wonders of St. Urbain, our St. Urbain, there was a man who ran for alderman on a one-plank platform - provincial speed cops were anti-Semites. There was a semi-pro whore, Cross-Eyed Yetta, and a gifted cripple, Pomerantz, who had a poem published in transition before he shriveled and died at the age of twenty-seven. A boxer who once made the Ring magazine ratings. Lazar of Best Grade Fruit who raked in twenty-five hundred dollars for being knocked down by a No. 43 streetcar. A woman who actually called herself a divorcee. A man, A.D.'s father, who was bad luck to have in your house. And more, many more."

From the Inside Flap: 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 in Time; 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 Street is a brilliant introduction to Richler?s lifelong love-affair with St. Urbain Street and its inhabitants.
