    1. A beautiful biography about the somewhat parallel lives of James Joyce and Italo Svevo I really enjoyed reading it because of the style of writing and the way in which the author intertwined their lives successfully.

    2. I if you want to know the model for Bloom and so much about the sources for his work, here it is A wonderful story of not only a friendship but also of the delightful generous Svevo and hilarious Joyce at his best and worst.
