Nora, A Biography of Nora Joyce - Brenda Maddox

These two. I would love to have to be a fly on the wall of the Joyce's home. Another story of a long-suffering wife who helped her husband achieve massive success. Yeah, sure, we appreciate Mr. Joyce but dang there always seems to be a woman behind this kind of success story. Nora has also been described as Joyce's 'portable Ireland', serving as a link to his beloved homeland. I don't know how to feel about that, but there we are. *Lightly read copy, pairs well with Dubliners.
