Today is Bloomsday

UlyssesCover

Bloomsday is the only international holiday that recognizes one specific work of art (James Joyce's "Ulysses").

Festivities at the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia โ€” home to Joyce's original "Ulysses" manuscript โ€” are ongoing as you read these words.

A book review of "The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle for James Joyce's 'Ulysses'", which appeared in the June 7 issue of The Economist, is here.

If you'd rather just read the book, you can do that too, right here โ€” free, the way we like it.

Up top is the cover of the 1922 first edition.
