I've tried reading James Joyce's Ulysses, but I never quite finished it. I've met plenty of people who started it, but only a couple (who say) they finished it. In order to be A Real Intellectual (tm), you need to be able to bluff yourself through a discussion of the novel. Luckily, help is at hand in the form of Ulysses for Dummies.
From Hunger smells an opportunity when we step in it. Herewith, our stripped-down, revved-up version of Joyce's great work, which we, with one eye on the marketplace, have called Ulysses for Dummies. Now you can thrill to the discussion of Shakespeare in chapter 9; weep with Simon Dedalus at Dignam's funeral in chapter 6; frolic with Bloom and Stephen in chapter 15's dreamscape of Nighttown; and join in Molly's optimistic vindication of the world in chapter 18. And it's in color, thanks to the 16-color palette of Windows Paintbox! Those with Netscape Navigator 2.0 have another (quite moving!) surprise.
Very funny. I do feel I should give the book another try..
