For those who think a century is entitled to more than one 'game-changer, ' there's a fine new book of literary criticism called Ulysses and Us: The Art of Everyday Life in Joyce's Masterpiece. -- David Kelly ""Paper Cuts: A Blog About Books""
[Kiberd is] one of our liveliest and most iconoclastic intellectuals. . . . Whether or not Ulysses is an example of wisdom literature, Ulysses and Us certainly is.--John Banville
Kiberd's book--lucid, learned, free of jargon and pretension--can make for a wonderful companion along the journey through Joyce's wondrous epic.--Sudip Bose
