Savagely funny satire on television, movies, and the entertainment industry. In the swinging culture of 60s London, Mortimer Griffin – Anglo-Saxon, Anglican, apolitical, and Canadian – works as an editor in a publishing house now taken over by Star Maker, a narcissistic Hollywood tycoon who has discovered the secret of eternal life. Adrift in this sea of hypocrisy and deceit where no one shares his values or ideals, Mortimer must navigate the currents of these changing times.

If I were in charge of a creative writing course I would make this one of the books to study as an example of a great writer at work. Mr. Richler is a true Canadian gem. Very entertaining.
