Description

A dazzling, prize-winning graphic biography of one of the world’s most revered writers.

Winner of Spain’s National Comic Prize and published to acclaim in Ireland, here is an extraordinary graphic biography of James Joyce that offers a fresh take on his tumultuous life. Joyce experienced poverty, rejection, censorship, charges of blasphemy and obscenity, war, and crippling ill-health.

A rebel and nonconformist in Dublin and a harsh critic of Irish society, he left Ireland in self-imposed exile with Nora, moving to Paris, Pola, Trieste, Rome, London, and finally Zurich.

He overcame monumental challenges in creating and publishing Dubliners, Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake.

With evocative anecdotes and hundreds of ink-wash drawings, Alfonso Zapico invites the reader to share in Joyce’s journey.
