From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
"Richler (1931-2001) brings vividly to life the Montreal of his adolescence; the excitement of the early Zionist youth movement in Canada; and the idea of emigration to Israel. Visiting Israel as a grown man, in 1962 and 1992, he searches out his boyhood pals and describes what happened to those who settled there and are faced with the opportunities and dangers of peace with the Palestinians. Woven through Richler's story are his keen observations on the Middle East conflict, on the relationship of Canada to Israel, and the experience of being both a Canadian and a Jew.

"... if Jerry, Hershey, Myer, and I had been born and bred in the squalor of Dheisheh [a Palestinian refugee camp near Hebron, Israel] rather than the warmth of St. Urbain [Street in Montreal, Quebec, Canada], we would have had the courage to be among the stone-throwers (p. 222)."
