Publisher's Summary

In this beguiling collection of short stories and memoirs, first published in 1969, Mordecai Richler looks back on his childhood in Montreal, recapturing the lively panorama of St. Urbain Street: the refugees from Europe with their unexpected sophistication and snobbery; the catastrophic day when there was an article about St. Urbain Street in Time; Tansky's Cigar and Soda with its "beat-up brown phonebooth" used for "private calls"; and tips on sex from Duddy Kravitz.
Overflowing with humor, nostalgia, and wisdom, The Street is a brilliant introduction to Richler's lifelong love affair with St. Urbain Street and its inhabitants.

Even the Street name is mispronounced

One of Mr. Richler's best early books is rendered useless by the narrator. St Urbain is pronounced St Urbin in English. He pronounces it St Urbane.It defies rational thought that anyone would put out an audiobook and have the centrepiece mangled.
