Description
Information
This biography, of one of Ireland's greatest novelists from the past, depicts James Joyce as a man hammered by Church, State and family, yet from such adversities he wrote works to bestir the hearts of men and angels. The journey begins with Joyce the arrogant youth, his lofty courtship of Nora Barnacle, their hectic sexuality, children, wanderings, debt and profligacy, and Joyce's obsession with the city of Dublin, which he would re-render through his words.

Nor are we spared the anger and isolation of Joyce's later years, when he felt that the world had turned its back on him, and we see how it could not be otherwise for a man who knew that conflict is the source of all creation.

'Irish Times' Non-Fiction Prize for Literature shortlisted book.
