One of Ireland's best current novelists provides a thumbnail sketch of Ireland's greatest writer. A passionate and sensuous portrait, James Joyce is a return to the land of politics, history, saints, and scholars that shaped the creator of the 20th century's groundbreaking novel, Ulysses. O'Brien traces Joyce's early days as a rambunctious young Jesuit student; his falling in love with a tall, red-haired Galway girl named Nora Barnacle on Bloomsday; and his exile to Trieste where he found success, love, and finally, despair. Joyce's raucous life as well as thoughtful commentary on his major writings is presented without the academic accoutrements that have made other Joyce biographies so difficult to read. O'Brien captures with simplicity the brilliance and complexity of this great master. Download and start listening now!

    " Nice biographical portrait of Joyce in chatty, familiar style. "

    " This book, the bio of Oscar Wilde, and "Angela's Ashes" describe so clearly the affects of alcoholism on the body, that it is a wonder that detox centers don't use them more often as conversation starters. "

    " Edna O'Brien does well. I have to admit it turned me on Joyce a little. Be it Catholicism, alcohol or whatnot, we should try to get past it. Instead, Joyce was consumed by his demons and rather a nightmare for those around him. "
