The book is James Joyce’s humorous take on the age-old Aesop’s fable – The Ant and the Grasshopper. This version comes along with series of hilarious illustrations in colour by the Irish artist Thomas McNally. The graphics and the text together makes a very interesting retelling of the fable altogether.
What makes this book stand out?
Being experimental and peculiar in its way, and a complete diversion from what James Joyce otherwise devoted his life to.
Read it for
A very differently flavoured James Joyce book that brings to the table humour, sarcasm and underlying meanings.
Don't read it for
If rereading fables makes you feel childish, don’t risk it.
