The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz

The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Mordecai Richler, one of our greatest satirists, comes one of literature's most delightful characters, Duddy Kravitz — in a novel that belongs in the pantheon of seminal twentieth century books.

Duddy — the third generation of a Jewish immigrant family in Montreal — is combative, amoral, scheming, a liar, and totally hilarious. From his street days tormenting teachers at the Jewish academy to his time hustling four jobs at once in a grand plan to "be somebody," Duddy learns about living — and

the lesson is an outrageous roller-coaster ride through the human comedy. As Richler turns his blistering commentary on love, money, and politics, The Apprenticeship Of Duddy Kravitz becomes a lesson for us all...in laughter and in life.
