Advent Calendar – December 5th

Behind the door in our Literary Advent Calendar today is a book of short stories chosen by Juliet West, author of Before the Fall.


Juliet has chosen Dubliners by James Joyce.

Juliet says: ‘Each story in James Joyce’s Dubliners is pitch-perfect, but the final story, The Dead, left me reeling when I first read it. Set on the night of a Christmas party, it’s utterly beautiful and unbearably poignant. If you haven’t read this yet, I envy you.’
