Dotter of Her Father's Eyes free pdf Part personal history, part biography, "Dotter of Her Father's Eyes" contrasts two coming-of-age narratives: that of Lucia, the daughter of James Joyce, and that of author Mary Talbot, daughter of the eminent Joycean scholar James S. Atherton. Social expectations and gender politics, thwarted ambitions and personal tragedy are played out against two contrasting historical backgrounds, poignantly evoked by the atmospheric visual storytelling of award winning comic artist and graphic novel pioneer Bryan Talbot. Produced through an intense collaboration seldom seen between writers and artists, "Dotter of Her Father's Eyes" is intelligent, funny and sad - a fine addition to the evolving genre of graphic memoir.
