The apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz
Duddy - the third generation of a Jewish immigrant family in Montreal - is combative, amoral, 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," he learns about living. His life is a lesson, in laughter and in life.
