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.

From the Publisher:
From his third generation Jewish immigrant family in Montreal, Duddy learns about life in this unforgettable human comedy.
Annotation:
Mordecai Richler's classic coming-of-age novel, about a monumentally self-absorbed, upwardly mobile young man--like Richler, a Canadian Jew--was seen by Jews as an unwarranted attack on the Montreal Jewish community, but became a huge popular success after it was made into a 1974 motion picture starring Richard Dreyfuss.
Author Bio
Mordecai Richler
Richler is the author, most memorably, of THE APPRENTICESHIP OF DUDDY KRAVITS, as well as many other works of fiction. Though he spent 20 years of his life in Europe, he always wrote about Montreal, and returned there permanently in 1972. Richler was one of the few writers to explore the dual experiences of being Jewish and living in Canada, and being an English-speaker in a largely Francophone area ("a minority within a minority"). Richler won the won the Governor General's Literary Award, Canada's highest writing prize, in 1968 and again in 1971. He had two wives and five children; he died of cancer at the age of 70.
