Rate this:

"St. Urbain s Horseman" is a complex, moving, and wonderfully comic evocation of a generation consumed with guilt guilt at not joining every battle, at not healing every wound. Thirty-seven-year-old Jake Hersh is a film director of modest success, a faithful husband, and a man in disgrace. His alter ego is his cousin Joey, a legend in their childhood neighbourhood in Montreal. Nazi-hunter, adventurer, and hero of the Spanish Civil War, Joey is the avenging horseman of Jake s impotent dreams. When Jake becomes embroiled in a scandalous trial in London, England, he puts his own unadventurous life on trial as well, finding it desperately wanting as he steadfastly longs for the Horseman s glorious return.

Irreverent, deeply felt, as scathing in its critique of social mores as it is uproariously funny, "St. Urbain s Horseman" confirms Mordecai Richler s reputation as a pre-eminent observer of the hypocrisies and absurdities of modern life.
