    “Outstanding” stories from the bestselling author—“as though David Lynch had been let loose on the set of a drawing-room comedy” (The Times).  The Museum of Doubt is a collection of surreal and unnerving short stories from award-winning writer James Meek. The array of characters who populate Meek’s vague and elusive worlds are driven by paranoia and doubts, as well as hopes and fears of things only half-glimpsed.   “Ricochets between the supernatural and the suburban throughout . . . the writing fizzes . . . This is true experimental writing: careless of taboo, teeming with ideas, elusive yet utterly controlled.” —The Guardian   “The maniac energy of Kerouac pulses throughout the prose, but there is also a hallucinatory horror and hyper-realist constraint miraculously balanced in a manner which suggests the perfect fusion of Kafka and Kelman.” —Scotsman   “Demanding and rewarding, lyrical and vernacular, smart and entertaining.” —Times Literary Supplement   “Bristling with wit and invention, these tales are full of hair-brained schemes, hair-raising moments, and incredibly close shaves . . . tongue-twisting wordplay, clipped dialogue and well-groomed characters . . . These stories are all collector’s items.” —The Sunday Herald “Stories of antler eaters, fish smokers and suburban psychopaths make up this often startling and always disturbing collection.” —Duncan McLean, author of Bunker Man “One of the country’s finest writers.” —GQ

    The debut of Ireland’s greatest author and one of the most influential voices in modern literature It took nine years for James Joyce to find a publisher for this vivid, uncompromising, and altogether brilliant portrait of Dublin at the turn of the twentieth century. Now regarded as one of the finest story collections in the English language, it contains such masterpieces as “Araby,” “Grace,” and “The Dead,” and serves as a valuable and accessible introduction to the themes that define Joyce’s later work, including the monumental Ulysses.   Elegantly interweaving a moral history of Ireland with profiles of brave, flawed, and utterly realistic individuals—many of them clearly drawn from the author’s own life—experiencing moments of profound insight, Dubliners is an essential work of art.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Early on in his stay he realizes that he has a doppelganger in the hotel. To begin with, the mysterious double seems bent on damaging the professor's reputation...but as the story progresses, it emerges that the intent is far more sinister....
