Written in My Heart : Walks through James Joyce's Dublin Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Fuchsia MacAree


James Joyce's Dublin sprawls through the intricate street networks of Dublin's inner city, quaint village main streets that pass through its coastal towns, vast park lands, prim suburban roads and grotty back alleys. Discovering Joyce's Dublin is to learn more about the fabric of a city and society that was changing at an astonishing rate, and bore the marks of a country that was struggling to define its national identity.

You'll see the places where figures like W.B. Yeats and George 'AE' Russell, who had a large influence on Joyce's work, would meet with him to discuss the Irish literary revival amongst other things. This book shows the hidden landmarks of Dublin city that make Joyce's work so vastly detailed and illustrious.

It takes you on a coastal tour of Dublin's seaside villages, through the manicured lawns of the suburbs and on a pub crawl of bars that make appearances in his work.

A unique way to delve into Dublin and learn about its history through the eyes of one of its most famous former residents.
