Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The real meat is a collection of brief quotes from past literary luminaries on the book's quality or lack thereof....Though light on scholarship, the book is great fun for hardcore Joyce heads. Should you buy it? Yes." Library Journal

Review:

"You should approach Joyce's Ulysses as the illiterate Baptist preacher approaches the Old Testament: with faith." William Faulkner

Synopsis:

For literature enthusiasts, June 16th is known as Bloomsday because it is on that day in 1904 that the events of James Joyce's Ulysses — as experienced largely by his hero, Leopold Bloom — take place. This compendium, published on the centenary of the original Bloomsday, contains a variety of responses to Joyce's great work, ranging from early reactions (puzzled, grossed out, bored) to the work of serious critics, and also includes cartoons, photographs, parodies, and more.
