About the Author
Irish novelist and poet James Joyce is widely recognized as one of the greatest writers of the modernist avant-garde period, although this recognition did not come until long after his death. In writings such as A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Dubliners, and his classic Ulysses, Joyce experimented with the use of language, extensively employed techniques like stream-of-consciousness and inner monologue, and pushed the boundaries of propriety with his explicit content. James Joyce died on January 13, 1941 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Colm Toibin is the author of eight novels, three of which have been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize: "The Blackwater Lightship", "The Master "(the "Los Angeles Times" Novel of the Year), and "The Testament of Mary". His other novels include "Nora Webster" and "Brooklyn". He is the Irene and Sidney B. Silverman Professor of the Humanities at Columbia University, a regular contributor to the "New York Review of Books", and a contributing editor at the "London Review of Books".
