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

"A handsome deluxe edition." --The New York Times

"A gorgeous new trade paperback edition [of] arguably the most important single-author short story collection in the English language." --KQED, "Great Lit Perfect for Summer Reading"
