Dubliners is a wonderfully engaging and accessible collection of stories by James Joyce, an author famed for being difficult to read. It contains The Dead, made into a memorable film by John Huston. This beautiful new edition has been chosen as the One Book, One City title for Dublin in 2012 and will be heavily promoted with events and advertising as well as in the press.


'recently reached the Irish bestseller lists, a feat it never achieved during his lifetime' -- Irish Daily Mail 'this is a book that will always be read ... a book about the beautiful thing that is language, the means by which we always come home' -- Irish Daily Mail 'a pleasant edition' -- Books Ireland 'James Joyce's most accessible book and perhaps his most unerringly beautiful one ... if you've never read it ... I envy you the magnificent pleasures lying in wait ... a most readable and beautiful collection' -- Irish Daily Mail 'if you have never actually read our most famous writer ... then the 15 stories in Dubliners are the perfect place to start ... if this is the only book you read this year' -- Evening Herald 'I had never read Dubliners, as I thought it would be far too 'serious' and 'challenging' but what I discovered was a fantastic read, full of humour, pain and loss - a must-read for those who love our fair city and those who want to try a bit of Joyce" -- 'a handsome reissue' -- RTE Guide
