The Last Words of James Joyce

We rated this book:


James Joyce is arguably the most influential writer of the twentieth century. His life and works have been studied by many experts and little is unknown about Joyce’s writings. In his research Augie Hiatt — a doctoral student — believes he has found a lost work by Joyce: an epic poem written for his daughter Lucia. Now, Augie is dead. Was it this find that killed him, or his connection with the porn industry or maybe an ex-lover? As the clues pile up, Detective Stamos must dive into the dark world of academia to solve this murder.

The Last Words of James Joyce is a new mystery by James Broderick, journalist, writer, and English professor. He delivers his crime novel in the classic three-act structure while poking fun at the worlds of literature and academia. Broderick brings together memorable characters: from a victim who turns to writing porn to pay the bills, to religious fanatics as suspects and a punk-rock-loving detective. This fascinating novel goes beyond just outrageous characters and a fun storyline. Broderick delves into the life of Lucia Joyce, making this book an entertaining mystery with a dash of historic fiction.
