Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes


Part personal history, part biography, Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes contrasts two coming of age narratives: that of Lucia, the daughter of James Joyce, and that of author Mary Talbot, daughter of the eminent Joycean scholar James S Atherton. Social expectations and gender politics, thwarted ambitions and personal tragedy are played out against two contrasting historical backgrounds. Produced through a intense collaboration seldom seen between writers and artists, Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes is intelligent, funny and sad. It remains the only British graphic novel to be awarded a major literary Prize: the Costa Biography Award 2012.
