The Joyce We Knew PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Joyce We Knew free pdf A collection of personal reminiscences of James Joyce by some of his friends and contemporaries which give a deep insight into the character of the man and bring to light many less well-known characteristics. Readers may be surprised to find out from these intimate accounts what an extrovert Joyce was: he was every bit the practical joker in the school drama society and in the gymnasium, and had ambitions to become a first-class swimmer. The perfect Edwardian 'card', the contrast provided here between the withdrawn Stephen Dedalus of his novels and the real Joyce is truly remarkable.

About Ulick O'Connor

Oliver St John Gogarty himself appointed Ulick O'Connor to be his biographer. O'Connor spent six years researching published and unpublished material, as well as collecting the reminiscences of Gogarty's many friends to compose the book.
