Much attention has been given to Joyce's life in Dublin and Paris, but his productive years in Trieste have not received the same attention. In a thoroughly documented account, Hartshorn presents a clear, accessible study of Joyce's love/hate relationship with the city, the work he produced there, and the influence of Trieste on his writing.

The book begins with a brief overview of Trieste's history prior to Joyce's arrival in 1904, and follows Joyce's life there until World War I, a period in which he completed ^IDubliners^R and ^IA Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man^R, and began ^IUlysses^R. Joyce then departed for the safety of Zurich and the book concludes with his brief return of eight months to Trieste in 1919. Hartshorn has drawn from many previously untapped sources, providing a fascinating look at Joyce's Trieste years that no other Joyce biographer has yet to reveal.

?This is a delightful book: nicely informative, clearly written, elegantly printed and produced. It reads smoothly, like an intriguing story-often dramatic, tragic even, but with a pervasive taste of foreboding and a persistent sense of future promise-written, almost as in fiction, by a model writer inviting the reader to participate in the construction of the text....[You] will find great reward in this biographical study.?-Irish Studies Review, Vol 7, #1, 1999
