In Dubliners, James Joyce takes us on an extraordinary journey with the ordinary men and women from the city of his birth. In 'Araby' a young boy struggles with everyday tasks in the face of a growing infatuation with his neighbour's sister; in 'The Boarding House' a single mother orchestrates a marriage proposal for her daughter; in 'The Dead' the ideas of birth and decay are played out over the course of a dinner. From short, lyrical stories to the novella-length masterpiece which concludes this collection, Dubliners is as alive with feeling as it was when first published.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In Joyce's eyes, Dublin is the whole world * * J. G. Ballard * *
Joyce made me want to write. His use of language was dazzling, impressionistic but controlled, rhythmic, diverse, achingly lyrical. He made people live on the page. He was serious, hilarious, sensitively romantic, filthy and absolutely honest -- Carol Birch
With just one collection of stories, Joyce left his mark on almost every short-story writer who followed him * * Guardian * *

“Grey days in Dublin.”

I came to this book having never read Joyce before and this time out only for the purposes of revision for exams. I know that many people regard this book extremely highly but I found it to be rather dull. The stories... More

“Betwixt and between”

A series of short stories, but not satisfying like a Guy de Maupassant. Apart from the last chapter, they are more observational of lives in Dublin than « stories ». Very little character development or purpose in the... More
