‘Frequently bloody hilarious […] I cannot recommend this delightful, unusual work highly enough. Bravissimo.’                                (Anne Cunningham, Meath Chronicle)

'Multiple Joyce has shot to the top of my favourite Joycean books […] absorbing, upfront, funny, erudite, and charming.’     (Nuala O’Connor, Books, Ireland)

This year being the centenary of the publication of Ulysses, there has been a flurry of new books and republications […] But to my mind David Collard’s Multiple Joyce is the most joyful and the most Joycean […] There is a real pleasure in reading a book about Joyce that actually makes you laugh.  (Stuart Kelly, The Spectator)

‘How heartening is Collard’s confident and spirited love of literature—of reading, of books!’ 
                                  (Barry Spurr, Quadrant)

‘What more could you possibly want to read on June 16th, Bloomsday, apart from the novel itself?’  

                                   (Richard Clegg, Bookmunch)

Multiple Joyce is a tour de force of curiosity.’

                                   (Melissa McCarthy, author)

‘… brilliantly idiosyncratic and richly digressive…’         

                                    (Jonathan Gibbs, author)

‘… it fizzes and astonishes at every turn…’

                                    (John Mitchinson, publisher)
