About this title

Synopsis:

This is a collection of photographs, drawings, sketches and illustrations - some reproduced for the first time - of James Joyce, his friends and his family. They depict him at work, reading, with his wife Nora and with his friends and admirers, including the tenor John Sullivan, Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Madox Brown.

From Library Journal:

James Joyce is remarkably alluring, and it's not just the writing. There's something about the figure of old Kinch himself with his walking stick and thick spectacles that's compelling. This heavily illustrated extravaganza (90 photographs in all) celebrates the great artist in all his incarnations from Dublin boyhood to elder years. Except for the mustache, he looks the same throughout-his is a face scratched in stone from birth. The late Anthony Burgess's introduction provides a brief biography on Joyce, and the volume is capped off with a chronology of his life. The main course of this sumptuous feast, however, is the portfolio of photos and drawings, many familiar (by Man Ray and Berenice Abbott, for instance) but many published here for the first time. Though unfortunately a bit pricey, this is nevertheless a rich gallery of portraits of the artist that no true Joycean should be without. Recommended for serious literature collections.
