Food and drink from Joyce’s Dublin

‘It seems to me…that to celebrate the food element in polymathic Joyce is an excellent thing…since Joyce is not merely polymathic but polyphagous. What we end up with here…is a celebration of the kind of honesty in food which is an aspect of the total honesty of the most honest writer who ever wrote.’ (from Burgess’s foreword, written in 1982)
