The dazzling tale of a clever young rogue who makes good (or at least makes money), The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz established Mordecai Richler as one of the great comic writers of the twentieth century. Determined to claw his way out of Montreal's Jewish ghetto, young Duddy 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, the cynical dreamer lies, cheats, and hurts everyone who loves him.

Amoral, yet oddly endearing, Duddy Kravitz 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 do come true.
