A collection of strong stories. Some a littly weak, most quite good and some really good. All of them bleak, realistic; brutally honest sometimes. Relatively easy to read though, unlike Joyce's other works. Especially like "A Little cloud", "Counterparts" and of course, the best one, "The Dead". Good for the personal canon, but quite enjoyable as well.
