Write Reads #51 The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz by Mordecai Richler


Welcome back, gang! Here is our Canadian Literature Classic. We hope you enjoy our discussion. Do you lean more towards Tania’s reading of the novel or Kirt’s? If Duddy is the apprentice then who is his mentor? Let us know.

Join us next month for Kirt’s Birthday Pick, River of Stars by Guy Gavriel Kay. We’ve been assured that you don’t have to read Book #1 in the series, so go ahead and dive in.

    I’m only 20 mins in, but I’m just curious if Kirt knows that “Netflix and Chill” is an euphemism for sex? I mean, either way is a good way to spend your birthday….

    Tania I’m loving your bookstagramming! Keep it up!

      I did know that it was a euphemism but I thought it could be used literally as well. Isn’t it, like, contextual or whatever? Like, if I said, “Hey, Baby, let’s Netflix and chill tonight,” that would be sexual. I’d also have to waggle my eyebrows suggestively (or do whatever emoji equivalent there is (or would the implication be enough?)). – Kirt
