Bloomsday with Marilyn Monore, Barry McCrea, Sylvia Beach, and, of course, James Joyce

Marilyn Monroe reads James Joyce

Since it is Bloomsday today, we offer two Bloomsday-related posts:

Barry McCrea’s new book In the Company of Strangers: Family and Narrative in Dickens, Conan Doyle, Joyce, and Proust, examines the evolution of the family plot in Victorian and Modernist literature, including a discussion of the famous “family” in Ulysses. Read it here.

We are also re-posting Keri Walsh’s essay on celebrating Bloomsday in Paris.

Finally, for those readers interested in both Marilyn Monroe and James Joyce, the above image is from James Joyce: A Critical Guide, by Lee Spinks.
