Redubbed remixes the iconic stories from James Joyce's Dubliners in celebration of its 2014 centennial. It's more than an eclectic collection of mashups, however. This anthology cum novel also tells the story of the eccentric employees of the publishing house which conceived it. More
In Berkeley, California, the eccentric employees of Pigeon House Press will do anything to keep the indy publisher alive after the death of its founder, Royal Cotter. Unfortunately, Royal’s will stipulates the seemingly impossible task of turning a profit on an as-yet-uninitiated project about his favorite author, James Joyce, or the entire inheritance goes to his ne’er-do-well nephew. When one of them hits on the idea of remixing the iconic stories from Dubliners in time to take advantage of its 2014 centennial, Redubbed is born. More than an eclectic collection of mashups, this anthology cum novel is also the story of its own inception.
