Hay Festival: Joyce and Ulysses with Adam Biles, Sinéad Gleeson, Xiaolu Guo, and John Mitchinson

Friends of Shakespeare and Company read Ulysses by James Joyce

Recorded at Hay Festival, Hay-on-Wye,  Tuesday 31 May 2022“Ulysses is going to make my place famous,” Sylvia Beach wrote to James Joyce when she made the decision to publish his novel, written over seven years and describing the events of a single day in Dublin. To celebrate a hundred years of this literary masterpiece, five devoted readers share their thoughts on reading a novel that has a reputation for being challenging, while maintaining a cult-like following as one of the defining books of modernism. ​Xiaolu Guo is a writer, Adam Biles is Literary Director at Shakespeare and Company in Paris and John Mitchinson is publisher at Unbound. They talk to writer and journalist Sinéad Gleeson.IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SHAKESPEARE AND COMPANY AND SUPPORTED BY THE EMBASSY OF IRELAND, LONDON AND THE CONSULATE GENERAL OF IRELAND, CARDIFF*Looking for our author interview podcast?
