Adam; Who are you supposed to be? Clayton; I am today Irish author James Joyce. Adam; Was he a pirate, too? Clayton; No. He had bad eyesight. Adam; I was joking. I actually the Newman family record for reading "Ulysses." Clayton; Really? How many times? Adam; 17 pages. No one else is even close.

    A book famed for its incomprehensibility, lauded by literary snobs as the greatest novel ever. Pretty much the same phenomenon as those who admire Picasso or John Cage.

    I think we were reading “Xanadu” when I told my English teacher we would understand it better if we were smoking whatever he was smoking when he wrote it. I think that was the year I flunked English.

    And then there’s Hemingway. Maybe he’s just a man’s writer.

    Now Joyce’s “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man,” holds a top ranking with me. Outstanding piece of literature.

    Being of Irish descent (look at my avatar), I like the storyline, but how many modern kids have even heard of James Joyce?

    I’m a modern kid, and I’ve heard of James Joyce.
