520 "A memoir of one of the most important novelists of the
twentieth century, never before published in North
America. 'In the ordinary sense Joyce was not a
conversationalist,' writes Arthur Power, author of
Conversations with James Joyce. An aspiring painter and
art critic, Power (of the famous whiskey family) struck up
a strained, somewhat prickly friendship with the master of
exile, silence, and cunning at the Bal Bullier in Paris,
in the year of 1921. This volume is Power's record of the
two men's encounters and conversations, whose subjects
ranged from Irish literature to American politics, and
from Assyrian monuments to the individual 'odor of a
country,' which, Joyce assured his wide-eyed interlocutor,
was 'the gauge of its civilization.' Here is a rare
glimpse of the private Joyce to Power's great surprise,
not a brash bohemian, but a steadily working, sharp-
tongued, elusive man"--|cProvided by publisher.
