Description - Reading Joyce by David Pierce

 Is there one who understands me? So wrote James Joyce towards the end of his final work, Finnegans Wake. The question continues to be asked about the author who claimed that he had put so many enigmas into Ulysses that it would  keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what he meant. Studied by thousands of students and with a huge popular following, Joyce is arguably the greatest writer of the twentieth century, but, for many, his books remain an impenetrable mystery. With the help of an engaging commentary, a guide to Joyce s writing, and a bank of material gleaned from thirty years teaching Joyce in the classroom, David Pierce has produced a book that makes sense of Joyce s work for today s reader. He succeeds in presenting Joyce as an author both more straightforward and infinitely more complex than we had perhaps imagined.
