1. Was it “Thank you for the scene in Davy Byrne’s James Joyce, it is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read”? Or more like “thanks a bunch for inflicting the tedious knobhead Stephen Dedalus on the world, James Joyce”? Or “James Joyce, my 10 month old daugther has convinced me that in fact a plate of peas and pepper is the most joyous of meals. But thanks for Dubliners anyway.”

  2. Solely for things like this:
    Stephen Hero (written 1904–6, published 1944)
    Chamber Music (1907 poems)
    Giacomo Joyce (written 1907, published 1968)
    Dubliners (1914)
    A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916)
    Exiles (1918 play)
    Ulysses (1922)
    Pomes Penyeach (1927 poems)
    Collected Poems(1936 poems)
    Finnegans Wake (1939)
    James Joyce’s Letters to Sylvia Beach, 1921-1940 (1987)

    Anyone can do that, I know.
