'This lively and concrete book is an illuminating guide.' - The Sunday Times 'What Ms Igoe doesn't know about the topography of literary Dublin isn't worth knowing.' - The Observer 'Extremely readable, interesting and informative ... It can be unreservedly recommended to visitors and natives.' - Irish Independent The new edition of this classic, richly illustrated guidebook, first published in 1990, gives a wonderful contextual depth to the Dublin childhood and formative years of James Joyce, and to the Galway origins of his consort Nora Barnacle. James Joyce's Dublin Houses & Nora Barnacle's Galway recreates with fascinating particularity the footfall and house-moves of a young Joyce and his extensive family (his father John changed addresses eighteen times between 1880 and 1904). Vivien Igoe takes the reader on this journey, pinpointing the locale of Joyce's real and imagined lives, mapping each work - from Stephen Hero to Finnegans Wake, by way of Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses - onto the town and people its author loved so well. From cityscape to mindscape, we witness the transformation of character and place, as Stephen Dedalus, Leopold and Molly Bloom walk again the streets of Dublin and Galway.
