Summary Montreal, 1948. Duddy Kravitz is an irresistible young Jewish man. He is driven by an insatiable desire to be a 'somebody.' He cheats, schemes and connives to buy a large parcel of land. He uses the girl who loves him, he forges cheques and he lies. He is enormously proud of all the shortcuts he has taken. In this race to succeed, Duddy realizes that there are many hard lessons to learn
