Just about 98 years ago to the day, in a small bookshop on the Left Bank of the Seine in Paris, France, a man named James Joyce published a very simple book that would lead many to call it the most complex work of art in recent times. In the Modern Library’s list of the top 100 books of the 20th century, Joyce’s book ranked number one.
