Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Pierce frankly acknowledges that this book is ``entirely dependent on the labour of others.'' All he has done is ``rearrange the material.'' His approach is biographical, cultural, and critical, taking up such Joycean topics as Joyce's childhood, Joyce and Parnell, Thomas Moore's Irish Melodies , the Edwardian Dublin, the topographical Dublin, feminism, nationalism, and Judaism. It all reads like a diverse selection of interesting Joycean tidbits. It also seems to aspire to the coffee table, for the text is enriched by a striking assortment of illustrations, from turn-of-the-century maps, portrait sketches, street scenes, and artifacts to contemporary artwork and stills from the John Huston movie based on Joyce's story, ``The Dead.'' This book doesn't cohere, but the confirmed Joyce devotee will enjoy rummaging around in it.-- Keith Cushman, Univ. of North Carolina, Greensboro
