Description

Liars, thieves, whores and priests. James Joyce sure knew how to throw a party! This relentlessly downbeat collection explores the very worst aspects of human nature, and doesn't leave out the juicy bits. It might not be in the best possible taste, but who doesn't want to get down and dirty in Dublin?

Reviews

"A hundred years on . . . "Dubliners "has been absorbed into our literary landscape, but in the early part of the twentieth century it was the sort of book that hadn't been seen much before, certainly from an Irish writer, and much of it shocked the conventional literary world. . . . [Joyce] was taking the lived landscape of his childhood and transforming it into something universal. . . . The stories contain some of the most beautiful sentences ever written in English." --Colum McCann, from the Foreword
