James Joyce

The future writer typically fails to show up in one scene of the 'Rising' chapter in the second book of Rutherfurd's Irish saga. But some of the characters in the story visit the Volta cinema he is running; and his friend Oliver St John Gogarty, who was a striking Dublin figure, plays a part in the tale.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
In 1890, nine-year-old Daisy Ashford wrote a novel and never showed it to the world. It was only after her mother’s death some twenty-eight years later, when she was sorting through old papers with her sisters, that she found the manuscript in a drawer. After the manuscript found its way to publishers, the book – The Young Visiters – came out in 1919, (yes, that is how the title was spelled) to great acclaim. After the book went into several editions, Daisy bought a farm with her earnings, commenting, “I like fresh air and royalty cheques”.
