Available in Stock
On 2 February 1922 the owner of the Parisian bookshop Shakespeare and Company collected the first copies of James Joyce's Ulysses. All hell broke loose: the Sunday Express denounced it as 'infamously obscene', while the Dublin Review warned that to read it was a sin against the Holy Ghost. This account tells the painful, exhilarating story of how Joyce's masterpiece was conceived, written, published, banned and burned before taking its place among the greatest works of world literature.
