Kevin Birmingham, author, The Most Dangerous Book:
The Battle for James Joyce's Ulysses endorses Left Bank
“Most people think of a book as being created by one person, the book's author. But that's not always true. Ulysses wasn't just created by James Joyce, it was created by many women who inspired Joyce, who supported him, who gave him the means to write his book, to publish his book, to publicize it, who made it what it is. Left Bank revises this overly simplistic history of this book.“
