Overview
The first-ever U.S. edition of this delightful gem based on a letter Joyce wrote to his grandson, revealing the modernist master s playful side filled with one-of-a-kind illustrations the perfect gift for Joyce fans and cat lovers alike.
"The Cats of Copenhagen "was first written for James Joyce s most beloved audience, his only grandson, Stephen James Joyce, and sent in a letter dated September 5, 1936. Cats were clearly a common currency between Joyce and his grandson. In early August 1936, Joyce sent Stephen a little cat filled with sweets a kind of Trojan cat meant to outwit grown-ups. A few weeks later, Joyce penned a letter from Copenhagen that begins Alas I cannot send you a Copenhagen cat because there are no cats in Copenhagen. The letter reveals the modernist master at his most playful, yet Joyce s Copenhagen has a keen, anti-authoritarian quality that transcends the mere whimsy of a children s story. Only recently rediscovered, this marks the inaugural U.S. publication of "The Cats of Copenhagen, "a treasure for readers of all ages. A rare addition to Joyce s known body of work, it is a joy to see this exquisite story in print at last."
