Now Edna OBrien, herself one of Irelands great writers, approaches the master as only a fellow countryman can. From Joyces adolescence through his travels abroad to the publication of Ulysses-the scandalous masterpiece that was initially banned in the U nited States but later hailed as one of the most brilliant novels of the twentieth century-OBrien traces the arc of Joyces remarkable life. Her biography is a tribute, at once affectionate and stern, from a contemporary writer to one of our most significant literary ancestors.
