Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles. This heart is sore and sad. Crossed in love? The manuscript of `Giacomo Joyce`, written in James Joyce`s best handwriting and folded between the covers of a school notebook, was discovered in Trieste. Most likely written in 1914, some of it served as a rehearsal for passages in Ulysses. Had Joyce meant to pillage it or publish it? Either way, this fragmented evocation of unrequited desire is, in the words of Joyce`s biographer Richard Ellmann, a work of `small, fragile, enduring perfection`. With a new introduction by Colm Toibin. Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
