Summary
A revealing new biography, the first in more than fifty years, of one of the twentieth-century's towering literary figures: James Joyce, author of "Ulysses." The author draws on material recently come to light and reconsiders the two signal works produced about Joyce's life, Herbert Gorman's authorized biography of 1939 and Richard Ellman's tome of 1959. By binding together more intimately the life and work of this singular artist, the author here gives us a masterful, fresh, eminently readable contribution to our understanding, both of Joyce's personality and of the monumental opus he created
