Publisher: Oxford University Press

Joyce's stories are rooted in the rich detail of Dublin life, portraying ordinary, often defeated lives with unflinching realism.

He writes of social decline, sexual desire and exploitation, corruption and personal failure, yet creates a brilliantly compelling, unique vision of the world and of human experience.
