Solomon Gursky Was Here is a novel by Canadian author Mordecai Richler first published by Viking Canada in 1989. It tells of several generations of the fictional Gursky family, said to have been inspired by the Bronfmans, who are connected to several disparate events in the history of Canada, including the Franklin Expedition and rum-running.
