The works of James Joyce are part of the literary canon worldwide--and the need to have his works broken out into palatable pieces, even for the most avid of fans, is known the world over as well. In Joyce For Beginners, W. Terrence Gordon does just that. With the assistance of Lynsey Hutchinson's humorous illustrations throughout, Gordon successfully captures bits and pieces of Joyce's works and reconstructs them in a picturesque way for the reader to visualize the stories. Gordon also examines Joyce's passion for music and how it materializes in his writing. This will be the perfect addition to any Joyce lover's library.
W. Terrence Gordon has published more than twenty books, including Linguistics for Beginners, McLuhan for Beginners, and Marshall McLuhan: Escape into Understanding. He has been the editor of the Marshall McLuhan Publishing Program at Gingko Press for the past twelve years, and is currently a professor emeritus at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Lynsey Hutchinson is a freelance illustrator and musician from Edinburgh, Scotland. Her work was first published in the award-winning graphic novel Burke & Hare, and she is one of the creators behind the Southern Gothic anthology Bayou Arcana: Songs of Loss and Redemption. Both Lynsey and her artwork appeared in the BAFTA-nominated 2011 independent Scottish film Electric Man.
