" 'Stephen Hero' is an early version of Joyce's 'Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man,' probably completed about 1906. It is said that when the manuscript came back to Joyce after rejection by the twentieth publisher to whom it was submitted, he threw it into the fire, from which his wife was able to rescue only a portion of the whole work. 'Stephen Hero' is more an autobiography of Joyce and less an objectivized novel" (from the dust jacket). Bookseller Inventory # BBJC12561
