Recommended to Claire by: Joyce.

Very simplified, I like that.. And when going over Ulysses, he lays out the structure of it (3, then 18, then 3 again I think); and goes through each section, saying from time to time: 'Now, this part is where a lot of people stop reading. What you need to do to keep going is this.. '. And lists a finite number of items that a first-time reader should focus on, and suggests letting the rest circle around about as it will, etc..
