by Richler, Mordecai

Condition: Near Fine/Very Good

Toronto: McClelland & Stewart Limited, 1974. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good. 8vo. SIGNED by author to FFEP. Full grey cloth with gilt lettering to spine. 377 p.p. Spine slightly tilted. Slight sunning to top edge. Dust jacket has some minor bumping and rubbing to extremities and joints. Some wear and small chips to spine ends and corners. A novel that unleashes a geyser of vigorous humour, hissing with satiric steam.

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 laughter and in life.
