Duddy Kravitz believed what his grandfather had told him: a man without land is nobody. He set his heart on land and if he made himself hated on the way, he couldn't care less.

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.
