'After more than seventy years of editorial corrections, specialists will buy the 'uncorrected' edition for its accuracy. Others should choose it as much for Johnson's excellent introduction and notes.' Tim Kendall. Hertford College, Oxford. Notes and Queries
For anyone coming to this 20th century classic for the first time, this paperback version could well make the going a little easier. * Lancashire Evening Post (Preston) *
Already got a copy of Ulysses. Well, chuck it out and get this ... this is the one, a reproduction of the original 1922 Shakespeare & Co edition ... has extensive notes at the back to explain references and correct gaffes ... Also astonishingly cheap. * Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian *
now the cheapest annotated paperback available and comes with a splendid introduction from Jeri Johnson, a map of contemporary Dublin, and a comprehensive set of explanatory notes ... As such, it should appeal both to those who are familiar with Joyce's book, and those who are approaching it for the first time. * Yorkshire Post (Leeds) *
hilarious, poignant, exhilarating ... The excellent guide, editor Jeri Johnson, refuses to allow short cuts for first-time travellers ... The detailed notes are useful ... the ideal way to set off on your personal odyssey. * The Times *

For anyone coming to this 20th Century classic for the first time, this paperback version could well make the going a little easier. * Yorkshire Evening Post (Leeds) Midweek section, 9 July 1997 *
