Book #421: Barney's Version (1997, Mordecai Richler)

This certainly is a clever book. It seems to be some sort of an autobiography of Richer  if his life were seen through one of those distorting mirrors at the carnival. I first thought that these characters represented actual people but when Duddy Kravitz made an appearance, I had to revise my thinking. I really don't know that much about Richler so I wouldn't be able to get as much out of this book as someone who is familiar with him and his work.
Be sure to read "Barney's Version", just be sure to read his other books first.
