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.
