Grae: What do you think of Joyce?
Simon: Joyce! Yes! Now you are talking – ‘Ullysses’ is fantastic; where the hero is measured through a single day, just 24 hours, in Dublin. I think it’s the best ‘stream-of-consciousness’ novel ever written. I really love his short story collection ‘The Dubliners’ – I’m always delving into that – and his novel Finegan’s Wake is also a classic. Wow! That is what I have to say about Joyce, his writing is amazing!
(A slight pause)
Grae: No. ‘Joyce’ the new girl in accounting.
