Book: The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz

The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz

By Mordecai Richler

Rating: 3 / 5

Description:

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.
