Attentive to the current state of Joyce studies, the writers of these extensively researched essays show how Joyce exhibits the spirit of the greatest of Renaissance writers and artists.

If you’ve read Dubliners, James Joyce’s collection of short stories set in early 20th-century Ireland, you might remember a brief story about an automobile race, a young college student named Jimmy Doyle, and Jimmy’s glamorous and wealthy European “friends.”

You will not believe how much this story can reveal. Dig into Joyce’s short story “After the Race” with lifelong Irish literary scholar Cóilín Owens, and watch this one small tale explode into a staggering Joycean universe.

    I’m still working my way through Collaborative Dubliners: Joyce in Dialogue, but I may have to give these a try next! The first title sounds especially interesting. http://www.amazon.com/Collaborative-Dubliners-Joyce-Dialogue-Studies/dp/081563269X
