Publisher Comments:

Barney Panofsky—Canadian expat, wily lover of women, writer, television producer, raconteur—is finally putting pen to paper so he can rebut the charges about him made in his rival’s autobiography.  Whether it’s ranting about his bohemian misadventures during the 1950’s in Paris, his tumultuous three marriages, or his successful trashy TV company, Totally Unnecessary Productions, he quickly proves that his memory may be slipping, but his bile isn’t.  But when he’s charged with the murder of his own best friend—caught in bed with the second Mrs. Panofsky—Barney’s version of things might not be enough to keep him out of trouble.


Charged with comic energy and a steely disregard for any pieties whatsoever, "Barney's Version" is a major Richler novel, the most personal and feeling book of a long and distinguished career.

About the Author

Mordecai Richler was born in Montreal in 1931.  Among his most successful novels are The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, St. Urbain’s Horseman, Solomon Gursky Was Here, and Barney’s Version.  He died in 2001.

Hilarious. Scathing. Sad. A great read by a real original.
