This special episode of The Critic Books Podcast is released on the 100th anniversary of the publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses. Francesca Peacock speaks to John McCourt (Professor of English Literature at the University of Macerata and author of Consuming Joyce) and Richard Brown, Reader in Modern Literature at the University of Leeds and editor of the James Joyce Broadsheet. How was the book received in 1922? What was Joyce influenced by? And was Marilyn Monroe really reading it in that famous photograph?
