Literature Book Club: Dubliners

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Join us for a discussion of the James Joyce classic.

The Menlo Park Library Literature Book Club meets the second Tuesday of the month. The selection for September is "Dubliners," by James Joyce.

With the fifteen stories in Dubliners, James Joyce reinvented the art of fiction, using a scrupulous, deadpan realism to convey truths that were at once blasphemous and sacramental.

About James Joyce
James Joyce (1882-1941) was an Irish novelist, short story writer, poet, teacher, and literary critic. He contributed to the modernist avant-garde and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in a variety of literary styles, most famously stream of consciousness. Other well-known works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). His other writings include three books of poetry, a play, his published letters and occasional journalism.
