Mordecai Richler is one of Canada’s best known writers. His satirical fiction includes Saint Urbain’s Horseman and The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz. For Jewish Book Week, his daughters discussed the family man behind the legend. In her two novels so far, Emma Richler depicts a family made up of loving and quirky siblings, a beautiful and intelligent mother, and a rambunctious father figure, recalling a childhood of mythic proportions. Martha Richler has a Masters in Art History and is now a cartoonist, with a wit all her own.
