At the start of the 21st century, assessments of the last 100 years of literary accomplishment place Joyce, and in particular Ulysses, at the top of the pile. Two recent rankings of 20th century novels have put Ulysses at number one. In autumn 2000, a new film from Natural Nylon (the independent film company set up by Sean Pertwee, Ewan McGregor, Jude Law et al) to be called 'Nora' will be released. Last year the Bloomsday walk in Dublin attracted thousands of participants and for the last 16 years in New York John Malkovich and a host of celebrity actors read the whole of Ulysses during the day and night of 16th June, an event which attracts tens of thousands of New Yorkers. In the style of our Beardsley and Wilde books we propose a beautifully illustrated biography of Joyce featuring Joyce's Dublin.show more
