It's been a while: Ulysses

I've started reading James Joyce's Ulysses. I was discussing David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick with my wife and I said I'd like to also read the Irish entry in the Big Big Multidimensional Book sweepstakes.

The next day, I saw a nice clean copy on a book table near NYU. So I guess it's meant to be.

Wish me luck: it's a biggie.

I couldn't find a nice representation on the Web of the cover most familiar to me (I paid double the original cover price for my copy, by the way) so I spent some time Photoshopping a scan of the Vintage Giant edition for y'all.

Y'all. Who am I kidding? No one reads a blog that's only been updated once in 5 years!
