While living in Trieste, Joyce wrote most of the stories in "Dubliners", turned Stephen Hero into "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man", and began "Ulysses". This biography uses previously unused Italian sources to recreate a fertile period in Joyce's life.

Review:

""The Years of Bloom" is an engaging, readable, and meticulous study. . . . McCourt has added much to our sum of knowledge about Joyce." Anne Fogarty, "The Irish Times"" "Superbly researched, accessibly written, thoroughly documented, and impressively presented, "The Years of Bloom" is a major work of outstanding scholarship and a welcome, enduring, seminal contribution which will be part of every college and university reading list and reference collections on the life and writings of James Joyce." "Midwest Book Review"" "John McCourt s book is a must for all Joyce scholars, but it will interest and entertain many common readers as well. The portrait of Joyce himself is engaging." "Times Literary Supplement"" "This book changes our entire view of Joyce's Trieste. It establishes the city as a vibrant microcosm of three cultures. Joyce was born in Dublin, but as John McCourt shows, he grew up in Trieste." Colm Toibin" "John McCourt's book is a must for all Joyce scholars, but it will interest and entertain many common readers as well. The portrait of Joyce himself is engaging."--"Times Literary Supplement"
