Description
Information
The bomb has exploded. It will blow a hole in the well-guarded prison of English Literature." The Quarterly Review

THE MOST DANGEROUS BOOK tells the painful, heartbreaking, exhilirating story of how Joyce's novel was conceived, written, published, burned, acclaimed and excoriated before taking its place as a masterpiece of world literature. Joyce's book ushered in the modernist era and changed the novel forever. But, for more than a decade, ULYSSES was illegal to own, sell, advertise or purchase. Joyce himself was a penniless outcast, reliant on his faithful supporters to keep both himself and his family going.

After decades of research, Kevin Birmingham brings this remarkable story to life: from the first stirrings of inspiration in 1904 to the landmark federal obscenity trial in 1933."
