Cocksure is Mordecai Richler’s savagely funny satire on television, movies, and the entertainment industry.

In the swinging culture of 60s London, Mortimer Griffin – Anglo-Saxon, Anglican, apolitical, and Canadian – works as an editor in a publishing house now taken over by Star Maker, a narcissistic Hollywood tycoon who has discovered the secret of eternal life. Adrift in this sea of hypocrisy and deceit where no one shares his values or ideals, Mortimer must navigate the currents of these changing times.

Cocksure won the Governor General’s Award for 1968.
