DUBLINERS: A QUARTET Set for Greene Space at WNYC, 6/28-29

DUBLINERS: A QUARTET Set for Greene Space at WNYC, 6/28-29 | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
James Joyce's Dubliners, once considered scandalous, sacrilegious - and, for a decade, unpublishable -- this year celebrates its 100th year in print. The stories in the collection peer into the lives of everyday Irishmen and women - the poor, the ordinary, working girls and wandering men -- portraying otherwise unremarkable people in some of the most luminous prose in the English language, recording their hopes and dreams, triumphs and tragedies in all their ragged humanity.
