Editorial Reviews

Review

“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”

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book feels at once good to hand. And when was the last time we could have the thrill of deckle edges on a paperback? This is a book to love for itself even before you open to its smooth and cool buff pages. Muradov's covers are close to perfect. Crisp and modern while echoing the early 20th century in line and style, they illuminate the text both subtly and overtly, depending on where one is gazing. If, like me, you sometimes envy those Hunter MFA students of McCann, you will enjoy his foreward. Getting this whiff of his exposition style is just fun. You will recognize again and savor his care of sentence and description as well as his ever lovely quixotic connections that so enliven his novels. All this and Joyce too. Almost too much. I replace my battered second hand copy because I wanted the McCann foreward. What? You're still reading? Away with you to order this book.
