    If you understood any of these things I would not understand you.

  2. “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man”. The only Joyce novel I could understand. I wonder what orange lipstick tastes like?

      I once organized and cleaned out my entire wallet while watching The Dead, based on the James Joyce novel.
