Description
Despite abandoning Ireland at the age of 20 for a lifetime of self-imposed exile, James Joyce seemed devoted to immortalizing his homeland in his stylistically revolutionary writings. Nowhere is the modernist Joyce more accessible than in this 1914 volume of 15 short stories set in turn-of-the-century Dublin, presenting a kaleidoscopic view of priests and politicians, children and old maids, con men and lovers. From a young boy's encounter with death in "The Sisters" to the petty sexual and fiscal machinations of "Two Gallants"—and the events of a Christmas party that reveal to an uprooted intellectual how little he really knows about his wife in the masterpiece "The Dead"—Joyce's short fiction conveys truths both blasphemous and sacramental in a scrupulous, deadpan realism. This Modern Library edition of a key work of 20th-century literature includes a new introduction by Booker and Franz Kafka Prize winner John Banville.
