Joyce had a death mask? This seemed very unlike him, but then again maybe he had no say in the matter.
Perhaps more importantly, who is this oddball peering at him so lovingly?
Turns out one of the Martello towers discussed in Ulysses, home to Stephen, Buck, and detested house guest Haines, has recently re-opened to the public, despite the financial woes of Ireland. The dreamy-eyed reporter was “horrified” by the closing of the tower for the spring and summer months, so has overcome her aversion to public service and volunteered a few shifts along with others, as part of the Friends of the Joyce Tower Society. Worth a visit for any Joyce enthusiast I suppose.
