Unflinching, fictional accounts of life in Ireland during the early twentieth century.
This collection by James Joyce includes two of his most famous works: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Dubliners. Joyce spent years writing an autobiographical novel that he later turned into his first novel, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. It was first published as a book in 1916, shortly after its success as a magazine serial. Dubliners is a collection of fifteen short stories relating the often-gritty reality of Dublin’s middle class in the early twentieth century. With famous titles such as “The Dead” and “Eveline,” this collection is a must-read for enthusiasts of classic literature.
