In places this book is very well written and engrossing while in other places it's aggravating. Richler's fascination with unpleasant or even downright despicable characters is a bit off-putting; meanwhile he seems to regard honorable, decent, virtuous people with a degree of contempt. The main character Jake is self-destructive and a bit narcissistic, which constrains any sympathy the reader may develop regarding his self-inflicted misfortunes. The "Horseman", a fantasy persona that Jake assigns to his cousin Joey, fails to engage me as a reader. In the end,the book doesn't live up to its billing.
