Publisher's Summary

Cocksure evokes the outrageous and bawdy years of the 'Swingin' Sixties'. Mordechai Richler has assembled the most bizarre gallery of types - Mortimer Griffin, worried about impotence and with good reason; Rachel Coleman, slinky Black Panther of the boudoir; the Star Maker, a movie tycoon of truly unnerving erotic abilities and a living miracle of spare-part surgery; a precocious group of schoolchildren with a taste for the teachings of the Marquis de Sade and many more characters all working out their problems against the frantic background of post-war freedom discovering Sixties Britain.

Weird book, dark satire that misses the mark

This is very dark satire set in Swinging London in the 1960's. The plot is fairly disjointed and I didn't really find the book very enjoyable or good. I liked some of Richler's other books but I think this one fell very short of its mark.
