Literary I am Not

Before we went away on holiday, I called into our local secondhand bookstore and walked out with, among other things, James Joyce's Ulysses. I have heard so much about this book for years that when I saw it I thought I might see what all the fuss was about.  No, I did not take it away with me - not totally silly.  But now I am wondering if there's such a thing as Ulysses for Dummies. LOL

Yes, there is: Anthony Burgess did a wonderful, hilarious book called 'Here Comes Everybody: An Introduction to James Joyce for the Ordinary Reader.' it's brilliant!!

OMG. Thank you Bo, I will probably have to order it in - I doubt our little backwater would stock it. Thank you again.
