Book: “The Dead”

The Dead

The Dead

by James Joyce

Often cited as the best work of short fiction ever written, Joyce’s story details a New Year’s Eve gathering in Dublin that is so evocative and beautiful that it prompts the protagonist’s wife to make a shocking revelation to her husband—closing the story with an emotionally powerful epiphany that is considered one of the best in modern literature.
