This is a book about the life and influence of James Joyce. It is a comprehensive biography but full of little details that bring everything to life. The story is engaging and emotional. The portrayal is nicely balanced. The drawing is remarkable and fluid, as is the editing. The locations appear realistic though there appears to be an occasional reliance on movie stills for some of the work and the female characters appear to look slightly more Mediterranean than Irish. The book is a good, fun read.
