Best-loved Joyce

A beautiful and accessible introduction to the writings of James Joyce. Short, entertaining quotes from his major works: Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, with more from his poetry & letters, and some family anecdotes handed down to grand-nephew Bob Joyce.

'Many tourists will be delighted to acquire a copy of Best-Loved Joyce, Jamie O’Connell’s selection of quotations and short extracts from Joyce’s fiction, portraying the author at his most accessible. It’s a beautifully produced little volume, lavishly illustrated by Emma Byrne, with a striking cloth cover, silk bookmark, and an introduction by Bob Joyce, James Joyce’s great-nephew, who writes how “Joyce was a conjuror with words and captured the essence of all human life” – or, as a line from Finnegans Wake has it, “They lived und laughed ant loved end left”' The TLS
