"This canny edition of Ulysses episodes from The Little Review throws revealing light on transatlantic modernism by tracing the intertwined histories of a seminal journal and Joyce's masterpiece. It reconstructs serial reading by embedding the early versions in their periodical and period contexts while sending us to the 1922 Ulysses with refreshed vision for those who already know it or with sharpened vision for first-time readers."--John Paul Riquelme, Boston University--John Paul Riquelme
"The Little Review "Ulysses" recreates the astonishing experience of reading the Ulysses installments before U.S. censors shut them down. Gaipa, Latham and Scholes are deft guides to a masterpiece in the making. It's indispensable reading for any serious Joycean."--Kevin Birmingham, author of The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle for James Joyce's Ulysses
--Kevin Birmingham
"More than the shock of recognition, there is a jolt of pleasure, indistinguishable from wonder, in encountering Ulysses as its first intrigued readers would have in the proudly modern pages of The Little Review."--Maria DiBattista, Princeton University

"At last, the very first published version of Ulysses seen by readers, as it appeared in that courageous journal The Little Review. Beautiful presented, its context clearly explained. This is a fascinating vision of the greatest twentieth-century novel in its first public appearance. The excitement radiates off every page. Here is a wondrous artwork's first outing, skillfully returned to the world." --Enda Duffy, University of California Santa Barbara

"A beautifully edited volume that allows contemporary readers to experience Ulysses as it was first published in serialization, warts and all. The scholarship is meticulous, helpful, and unobtrusive." --Sam Slote, Trinity College Dublin
--Sam Slote
"A treasure - the Ulysses that readers first saw and that a court banned, beautifully presented to help us encounter this work in progress as it unfolded in the Little Review." --Michael Groden, author of "Ulysses" in Progress and "Ulysses"in Focus
--Michael Groden
