THE KIDNEY!!

Bloom’s precious kidney is saved from imminent ruin.  He shoves the book in his pocket so he can return it to the lending library later and get Molly something new, and he stubs his toe on the chamberpot (which you can see on the floor on page 37).  The narrator describes Bloom digging in in a most poetical fashion, while Bloom recalls something from Milly’s letter that troubles him:  “a young student.”  This is Alec Bannon, whom we hear about briefly in Telemachus (he’s a friend of Buck Mulligan’s, so of course immediately suspect); Mulligan describes getting a card from Bannon where he talks about having met a “photo girl” in Mullingar.
