Dubliners - Jeri Johnson, James Joyce This is my first experience of Joyce and I really liked it. I read it in Persian and unfortunately the translation wasn't so good, but even with that translation it was so clear to me what a treasure it was.

Joyce knows everything; every small step, every small gesture. He lives in the present moment. He sees the people: how they feel, how they think, how they speak. A genius psychologist; a genius writer!

Reading this collection of short stories shows me every little emotional experience in life should be valued. I can't write a story based on them, but who knows, maybe Joyce could!
