Novelist and Critic

Born: 27 January 1931

Canadian novelist and critic whose unflinchingly sarcastic yet brilliant works were typically set within the Canadian Jewish community. He reserved his most potent barbs for proponents of the Quebec separatist movement. His books include The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1959), which was adapted for the big screen in 1974, and St. Urbain's Horseman (1971).

Died: Montreal, July 4, 2001
