Dare it!

"On now, dare it. Let there be life!"

(From "Ulysses" by James Joyce)

Joyce was born 130 years ago on Feb. 2, 1882 in Dublin, Ireland.

Feb. 2nd marks 90 years since the first complete edition of "Ulysses" was published by Shakespeare & Company, Sylvia Beach's bookstore in Paris. Joyce insisted the novel be published in time for his 40th birthday on 2/2/22.
