The Incomparable Atuk
Incomparable Atuk by Mordecai Richler
Book DescriptionTransplanted to Toronto from his native Baffin Island, Atuk the poet is an unlikely overnight success. Eagerly adapting to a society steeped in pretension, bigotry, and greed, Atuk soon abandons the literary life in favour of more lucrative and hazardous schemes. Richler s hilarious and devastating satire lampoons the self-deceptions of the Canadian identity and derides the hypocrisy of a nation that seeks cultural independence by slavishly pursuing the American dream."
