I cannot recommend this book enough. It turns night into day. Joyce makes very few concessions to the reader, and unless your knowledge of early twentieth century Dublin is much better than mine, a lot of the references will be lost on you. In the end, Ulysses is well worth reading. Joyce could be an asshole, but he had the genius to make up for it.
