Summary

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 20th 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.

Wonderful story

I came across this book after Michael Lewis mentioned it in a New York Times interview. It's a terrific story, very enjoyable, and I look forward to listening to the rest of Richler's books.

OK but a bit disappointing; weak narration

For a book this famous I was underwhelmed. The story is OK; but Duddy can be a very annoying character; he not a moralist, yet pride prevents him from taking short cuts the wealth he craves. I was especially disappointed in the narration, He doesn't even try to differentiate between the characters with different voices.
