The 500 page work details a single... More > day in the life of Jewish Irishmen Leopold Bloom (now known as "Bloomsday") as he carries on in Dublin. Each of its chapters correspond to an element of Homer's Ulysses, relate to a particular organ of the body, and is written in a different literary style.

A sign of more is not mentioned. A piece of coffee is not a detainer. The resemblance to yellow is dirtier and distincter. The clean mixture is whiter and not coal color, never more coal color than altogether." Get Your Copy Now.< Less
