January 13th 2012 is the 70th anniversary of James Joyce's death. That means his writing is no longer protected by European copyright law so expect an explosion of new productions and adaptions .
Joyce was a notoriously slow writer. There's many variations of this legendary anecdote, here's one...
"Productive day today Mr Joyce?"
" . . . Yes, I completed three sentences."
And I've just come across this one.
"So, what did you do during the war, Mr Joyce?"
" . . . I wrote Ulysses. What did you do?"
