It is a classic book of James Joyce written before his much famous "Ulysses". Once, in my youth (when I was doing my post-Graduation) I read this novel. Now, after so many years I am relishing the warmth and flavour of Dublin city being the compassionate companion of the young Artist's artistic, religious crises. A most enjoyable journey it is! Thanks to flipkart for providing this book in a neatly bound (containing good pages with readable fonts) condition.

There are many journeys for a reader and each journey serves a unique purpose. For this one I would say, the oddness to understand an artist's mind through his maturing age is spherules to your own maturation. Often a different path paves his ways in your mind; like how this novel did to me - Künstlerroman(Bildungsroman), understanding a new genre by this.
