Happy New Year! I hope this years brings wonderful books to your library.
Like, the first Book Club pick of 2019: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce.
I’ve decided to start the year off with one of my favorite authors. I also just so happened to already own this novel (If I’m honest, I accidentally bought two of them.)
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The portrayal of Stephen Dedalus’s Dublin childhood and youth, his quest for identity through art and his gradual emancipation from the claims of family, religion and Ireland itself, is also an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce and a universal testament to the artist’s ‘eternal imagination’. Both an insight into Joyce’s life and childhood, and a unique work of modernist fiction.
As always, if you have a suggestion for next month, comment below.
