A while ago I announced the forthcoming publication of a beautiful new edition of James Joyce’s Dubliners, published by de Selby Press in Paris, with illustrations by Stephen Crowe, and a wonderful introduction by Irish author Paul Murray.
As an ex-pat and a Dubliner, I feel a special kinship with Joyce. He is, after all, the Poster Boy for Irish Emigration.
My copy of Dubliners arrived in the post yesterday … just in time for Christmas!
I am now the proud owner of no. 73 of a limited issue of 800 copies of Joyce’s collection of short stories.
If you are still looking for the perfect gift for the book-lover in your life, then this lovely edition of one of the greatest short story collections ever written is the ideal thing.
I did a little fluffcast about the book … be warned, I recite from “The Dead” in this one.
