Product Description:

A classic novel which follows Stephen Dedalus as he progresses from boyhood to his coming of age in Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century, describing his sexual awakening, his intellectual development and his rebellion against Roman Catholicism. From the author of Dubliners, Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake.

Review:

"Joyce's depiction of the early Dublin life of Stephen Dedalus towers over modern literature, providing a stylistic blueprint and creative touchstone for artists young and old" ( Guardian)

"It's damn well written" (Ezra Pound)

"There is nothing more vivid or beautiful in all Joyce's writing. It has the searing clarity of truth...but is rich with myth and symbol" ( Sunday Times)

"James Joyce is my favourite novelist...Once I had read [this] I knew that I could never create anything that even came close to Joyce's magic" (James Patterson Sunday Express)
