Mumblecore Montréal


The image is the front of Wilensky's Light Lunch {34 Ave Fairmount W./O.}, not far from where I'm staying, which was made famous by Mordecai Richler's The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz. Here's a 1990 gastronomical look at Montréal through a Richler lens. In that article, I found out Saul Bellow spent his early childhood in this part of Montréal and that Wilensky was a Communist.. Also, some Kravitz film trivia...Yvette, played by Micheline Lanctôt was born in Frelighsburg, QC, which is near the part of the Eastern Townships I love visiting.

The French immersion continues. Watching the Word Series on RDS en français.
