Jacob Richler is a Canadian newspaper and magazine journalist, and the son of novelist Mordecai Richler and Florence Isabel (Wood). He was the inspiration for his father's Jacob Two-Two trilogy of children's books.[1]

Richler was a long-time restaurant reviewer for the National Post, known for his biting, highly critical reviewing style, though he is no longer listed under that newspaper's columnists directory and has not contributed an article to the newspaper since early 2007. Richler has also been a columnist and feature writer for Saturday Night, Financial Post Magazine and Toronto Life, as well as a contributor to GQ, Canadian Living, Fashion, Flare, Maclean's and enRoute. He also collaborated with chef Susur Lee on the book Susur: A Culinary Life.[2]

He was married to Globe and Mail journalist Leanne Delap, from whom he was divorced in 2005.[3]
