Overview

"This is a strong and wide-ranging collection of worthwhile, cogent, and lucid essays."--Morris Beja, Ohio State University

"A strong and, in many cases, innovative volume that all Joyceans will want."--Stephen Watt, Indiana University

Michael Gillespie focuses broadly on social, cultural, and historical aspects of age and aging, using nonlinear perspectives to explore how each topic might be applied to James Joyce and his writings.
