"This book was my first taste of â€˜Literatureâ€™ in school, so itâ€™s close to my heart.
Nelsonâ€™s Pillar, erected on Oâ€™Connell Street by the British, is shown on the cover. It loomed large in Dublin life when the novel was published, both metaphorically and literally.
The represents a phallic symbol penetrating the title, signifying the deep undercurrent of sexual anxiety throughout the stories and British domination of the Irish nation.
I cut off Nelson\'s head to reference the surreal and anarchic nature of Joyceâ€™s humour." - Dave Hall
