James Joyce

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

i'd heard of him, but didn't know anything about him. so i looked him up on wikipedia:

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish writer and poet, widely considered to be one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Along with Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, and others, Joyce was a key figure in the development of the modernist novel. He is best known for his landmark novel Ulysses (1922). Other major works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939).

Yep, apparently we're in good literary company with a score of James Joyce, which incidentally came up on excerpt from one of my historical novels, the second historical excerpt trawled Virginia Woolf.

For two samples from modern romances I scored Chuck What-his-name: he of Fight Club fame, and that of Joanna Trollope!. Not sure what to make of either of the latter. :o)
