Publisher's Summary

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 20th 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.

    "Wonderful story"

    I came across this book after Michael Lewis mentioned it in a New York Times interview. It's a terrific story, very enjoyable, and I look forward to listening to the rest of Richler's books.

    Story
    "Belongs in the canon of Great Canadian writers"

    A classic, great story you will not stop listening! Richler at his best. Better than the movie, which was also excellent with a young Richard Dreyfuss as Duddy.
