Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great insight into the novels A great source if you're interested in the sources for J's novels and stories. I had no idea until I read this how much of his work in autobiographical. Some of the trivia of J's life got a bit tedious. I stopped reading after the publication of Ulysses because I haven't managed to get 20 pages into FW.

From Our Editors

The fresh material deals with most aspects of Joyce's life: his writings and his attitude towards them, his experiences of love and desire, his domestic travails, his political views.
