9780671028473: The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz

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 Inside Flap:

Determined to claw his way out of Montreal's Jewish ghetto, young Duddy Kravitz takes to heart his grandfather's maxim that "a man without land is nobody." In his relentless pursuit of property and a big-time reputation, this cynical dreamer lies, cheats, and hurts everyone who loves him.

Ruthless and yet oddly endearing, Duddy is one of the most charismatic anti-heroes of all time — a man who learns the hard way that dreams are not exactly what they seem, even when they come true.

The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz established Richler as one of North America's great comic writers. Abridged by ther author himself and featuring the melodious voice of Broadway's Paul Hecht, this superb archival recording captures the frenetic pacing and sharp wit of the 1959 masterpiece.

About the Author:

Mordecai Richler was born in Montreal in 1931. Among his most successful novels are The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (made into an acclaimed film starring Richard Dreyfuss), St. Urbain's Horseman, Solomon Gursky Was Here, and Barney's Version. He divides his time between Canada (Montreal and Lake Memphremagog) and London.
