Dermot Bolger, Irish Independent

«

Never has a visit to the attic proven so educational.

»

Dermot Keyes, Waterford News and Star

«

This book is a delightful, chatty introduction to the wonderful world of James Joyce’s Ulysses

»

Felix M. Larkin, The Irish Catholic

«

I can take heart from Dan Mulhall, Ireland’s ambassador to the US, whose Ulysses: A Reader’s Odyssey is just published. He takes a practical approach: if some bits of the book prove just too baffling, simply bin them and skip on a few pages.

»

Jude Webber, Financial Times

«

Powerfully, [Mulhall] argues that Joyce and Ireland for him are indissociable and that he retains a burning relevance today.

»

Anne Fogarty, The Irish Times

«

....an excellent guide through daunting terrain.

»

Pat Carty, Hot Press

«

...releases the great masterpiece from its reputation of impentrability. An affectionate, accessible tribute.

»

JP O'Malley, Sunday Independent

«

Ambassador Mulhall cleverly decodes all 18 episodes of the novel, providing personal and funny insights that contextualize and illuminate Joyce’s text, making you want to pick up "Ulysses" again.

»

Ted Smyth, Irish Central

«

James Joyce’s magnus opus remains in need of chaperones. This is certainly one of the better ones available — highly readable, personable and well researched.

»

Kevin Power, The Times (UK)

«

‘In this genial, largely first-person narrative, based on Mulhall’s experience of discussing Ulysses .. during his international postings, he argues that Joyce is a significant asset for the “soft power” of the Irish state.’ 

»

Emer Nolan, The Times Literary Supplement

«

Mulhall brings a historian’s eye to Joyce’s text, rather than that of a literary critic, and he writes about Ulysses with exuberance and evident enjoyment.

David Blake Knox, Dublin Review of Books
