Nora Barnacle – Joyce’s Muse

City of Books


At the age of twenty, Nora Barnacle left everything she knew behind to share the adventure of a lifetime with James Joyce. He immortalised Nora as Molly Bloom in Ulysses. Here, Nuala O’Connor talks to Martina Devlin of City of Books about the famous literary couple.

City of Books is a podcast in which host, author and journalist Martina Devlin, talks books to all sorts of people who believe books matter – and that you can never have too many books. It’s sponsored by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and produced in association with MoLI.
