Got to be honest, really struggled with this one. Well written but I thought rather dull.
Review by EricFitz08
My all time, hands down, favorite book. The classic coming of age tale of Stephen Dedalus in late 19th, early 20th century Dublin is the golden stadard of wordsmanship. <i>A Portrait</i> is challenging but rewarding with pleanty of depth but more accessible than some of Joyce's later works.
