Dubliners Reviews

'recently reached the Irish bestseller lists, a feat it never achieved during his lifetime'

-- Irish Daily Mail

'this is a book that will always be read ... a book about the beautiful thing that is language, the means by which we always come home'

-- Irish Daily Mail

'a pleasant edition'

-- Books Ireland

'James Joyce's most accessible book and perhaps his most unerringly beautiful one ... if you've never read it ... I envy you the magnificent pleasures lying in wait ... a most readable and beautiful collection'

-- Irish Daily Mail

'if you have never actually read our most famous writer ... then the 15 stories in Dubliners are the perfect place to start ... if this is the only book you read this year'

-- Evening Herald

'I had never read Dubliners, as I thought it would be far too `serious' and `challenging' but what I discovered was a fantastic read, full of humour, pain and loss - a must-read for those who love our fair city and those who want to try a bit of Joyce''

-- dailyupdate.ie

'a handsome reissue'

-- RTE Guide

About James Joyce

James Joyce (1882-1941) is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the twentieth century. After graduating from University College Dublin, Joyce went to Paris. During World War One, Joyce and Barnacle, and their two children, Giorgio and Lucia, moved to Zurich where Joyce began Ulysses. He returned to Paris for two decades, and his reputation as an avant-garde writer grew. Joyce's works include the short story collection Dubliners (1914); novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916), Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939); two poetry collections Chamber Music (1907) and Pomes Penyeach (1927); and one play, Exiles (1918). Every year on 16 June, Joyceans across the globe celebrate Bloomsday, the day on which the action of Ulysses took place, proving Joyce's importance to literature.
