Dubliners was first published in 1914. The book depicts middle-class Catholic life in Dublin at the beginning of the twentieth century. The topics related in the opening stories include the disappointments of childhood, the frustrations of adolescence, and the importance of sexual awakening.

Joyce was 25 years old when he wrote this miscellaneous collection of short stories, among which ‘The Dead’ is probably the most famous. Considered at the time as a literary experiment, there are moments of joy, fear, grief, love and loss, which come together to form one of the most complete and comprehensive depictions of a city ever committed to the page, and they remain as refreshingly original and surprising at the beginning of this century as they were at the beginning of the last.

Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges.  Written by James Joyce with an afterword by Peter Harness. Hardcover; 264 pages.
