Críticas:

'Riveting ... populated with enough larger-than-life characters and twists to make a fiction writer envious' Matthew Pearl.

'A wonderfully eye-opening read ... superb' Frank Delaney.

'Birmingham's imaginative scholarship brings Joyce and his world to life' Louis Menand.

'Kevin Birmingham has a deep love of Ulysses, and knows everything about Joyce. His learned book is a gripping page-tuner' A. N. Wilson, Sunday Telegraph.

'A riveting account of just how difficult it was to bring Ulysses into the world' Sunday Herald.

'It is a wonderful guide to the 20th century's most dangerous, brilliant book' The Sunday Times.

'With humour, excitement and conspicuous scholarship, literary historian Kevin Birmingham recounts the creation of the novel, the fight against censorship, and the establishment of a classic that changed the face of literature' The Good Book Guide.

'Few books about publishing manage to be this gripping. Like the novel which it takes as its subject, it deserves to be read' Economist.

'Birmingham tells the story with a mixture of compelling insight and deeply researched knowledge to form that most unusual hybrid: an erudite page-turner' Mail on Sunday.

Descripción Head of Zeus, 2014. Condición: New. On 2 February 1922 the owner of the Parisian bookshop Shakespeare and Company collected the first copies of James Joyce's Ulysses. All hell broke loose: the Sunday Express denounced it as 'infamously obscene', while the Dublin Review warned that to read it was a sin against the Holy Ghost. This account tells the painful, exhilarating story of how Joyce's masterpiece was conceived, written, published, banned and burned before taking its place among the greatest works of world literature.
