The blog at the James Joyce website has a spectacular blog post about James Joyce for his birthday, and Garrison Keillor talks a little about the personality and mannerisms of James Joyce on the A Writer’s Almanac podcast today. There is also a good little bio over at the Poetry Foundation.
Favorite James Joyce Books
For a Good Read, I would recommend Ulysses and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Ulysses earned the top spot on the New York Times Best Books (selected by the editorial board of Modern Library), and is #2 on my personal list.
