I’m happy to announce that a new special issue of JJQ on “Joyce’s Lives” is now in the mail.  It features a variety of biographical essays on Joyce that range across topics like fatherhood, alcoholism, stardom, and even advertising.  The contents include:

  • Joseph Kelly on Joyce’s maturation as a father and an artist;
  • Austin Briggs writing about Joyce’s often profligate and self-destructive drinking;
  • Gordon Bowker expanding on his new biography with a piece about Joyce’s career in England;
  • Eleni Loukopoulou on Joyce’s widespread publishing network in London and the way it organized and sustained his reputation;
  • Catherine Gubernatis Dannen’s essay on Joyce’s (mythical) work as an advertising copywriter for Guinness–and what it tells us about the author’s changing reputation in Ireland.

These essays are featured alongside our usual collection of notes, commentary, and book reviews.  The journal is available in print or electronically at Project MUSE.
