Written in 1923, after disengaging from Ulysses and before conceiving of Finnegans Wake, Finn’s Hotel comprises ten ‘epiclets’ (three of which only came to light in 2004) centring on epoch-making moments in Irish history and mythology.

James Joyce, ‘Finn’s Hotel’ (Ithys Press, 2013).

The Cats of Copenhagen

Letterpress First Edition limited to 200 copies in two issues.

Exquisite, surprising, and with a keen, almost anarchic subtext, The Cats of Copenhagen is a slightly younger twin sister to The Cat and the Devil, the only other known example of Joyce writing a story for children.
