This story collection is a good introduction to James Joyce. It's not as dense as "Ulysses" and I found it more enjoyable than "A Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man." Some of my favorite stories are "The Dead," "Araby," and "Eveline."
James Joyce learned Norwegian so he could write to the famous Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen.
A first edition of "Dubliners," signed by the author himself, can be yours for $423,000.

She stood among the swaying crowd in the station at the North Wall. He held her hand and she knew that he was speaking to her, saying something about the passage over and over again. The station was full of soldiers with brown baggages. Through the wide doors of the sheds she caught a glimpse of the black mass of the boat, lying in beside the quay wall, with illumined portholes. She answered nothing. She felt her cheek pale and cold and, out of a maze of distress, she prayed to God to direct her, to show her what was her duty.
