Quote, unquote: That abrasive, authoritative, funny voice

"As a journalist and critic, Richler set the mark for writing that was honest, scabrous, outrageous and courageous. Such a voice had not been part of the Canadian journalism before him, and hasn’t really been heard since. While working on Mordecai the most frequent comment I heard from writers and journalists was how much they “missed Mordecai.” Missed the voice—that abrasive, authoritative, funny voice—that came so naturally to him"
-- Author Charles Foran, responding in an excellent interview with Caitlin Manicom in Maisonneuve magazine about his new biography of Mordecai Richler.
