Just Sayin’

If you need a great read having to do with all things Irish (which turns out to be, undeniably, the whole of humanity), on this St. Patrick’s Day I recommend Ulysses by James Joyce. 

Not only will Joyce’s command of the English language entrance you, but characters Dedalus and Bloom offer a glimpse of the sublime within typical moments of their day. 

Joyce’s voice is magic as he conjures a realism beyond the ordinary in an extraordinary work of period literature.   Want a glimpse into human soul?  Ulysses will take you there in a heartbeat.
