    Sylvia Beach and James Joyce in Paris - Sylvia Beach – the owner of the bookshop Shakespeare and Company – died on November 12, 1962. Shakespeare and Company was nothing short of a phenomenon. A small bookshop on rue de l'Odéon that became the meeting-place, focal point and publishing house for some of the greatest writers of the 20th century. #books & # authors

Love this image of James Joyce, South of France, 1922. He was losing his sight at this time. You can feel the emotional pain in this dramatic image.

“All things are inconstant except the faith in the soul, which changes all things and fills their inconstancy with light.”

Yeah, he also wrote a few books, but James Joyce simply looks too cool for school here.
