I received a greeting from a fellow reader and Dickens Scholar (among other things) reminding me about this day. While not joining in the celebrations, I will pen this brief greeting for I have enjoyed my reading of James Joyce. The celebrated Ulysses was a challenge, and one that was worth the effort. However, my favorite is the small and delicate voice of Joyce found in The Dubliners. Joyce was a giant and literature is richer for his profound contribution.
