This collection of 15 stories was first published in 1914. James wrote them as descriptions of middle class life in Ireland but in each story one or more characters has an "epiphany," - a moment where the character has a speical moment of illumination. Many of the characters in these stories later appear in his novel, Ulysses.

Great book, poor narration

These stories are so well written, but I found the narration so monotonous it was distracting. I am redeeming another credit to find a narration that can do the stories justice.
