9780143051466: Penguin Modern Classics Apprenticeship Of Duddy Kravitz

From Mordecai Richler, one of the 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.

Product Description:

Duddy Kravitz is obsessed with his grandfather's maxim, “A man without land is nobody.” He sets his heart on acquiring property and does not let any obstacle dissuade him. If he becomes hated along the way, he couldn't care less. In spite of enormous sacrifices and setbacks, Duddy never loses faith in realizing his dream.

The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz is the novel that established Mordecai Richler as one of the world's best comic writers. A classic tale of coming of age on Montreal's St. Urbain Street, it is an unforgettable story of ambition, dreams, and familial love.

From the Inside Flap:

The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz is the novel that established Mordecai Richler as one of the world?s best comic writers. Growing up in the heart of Montreal?s Jewish ghetto, Duddy Kravitz is obsessed with his grandfather?s saying, ?A man without land is nothing.? In his relentless pursuit of property and his drive to become a somebody, he will wheel and deal, he will swindle and forge, he will even try making movies. And in spite of the setbacks he suffers, the sacrifices he must make along the way, Duddy never loses faith that his dream is worth the price he must pay. This blistering satire traces the eventful coming-of-age of a cynical dreamer. Amoral, inventive, ruthless, and scheming, Duddy Kravitz is one of the most magnetic anti-heroes in literature, a man who learns the hard way that dreams are never exactly what they seem, even when they do come true.
