Re the MM photo below, from a recent slam on Joyce's grandson Stephen in the New Yorker:

Stephen was funny and playful on the phone, although a subtext of anger was often evident. Acknowledging his pugnacity, he said, “It is better to be pissed off than pissed on.” He said that he didn’t much like the work of Vladimir Nabokov, though perhaps he had just “read the wrong book”; he admired William Styron’s “Tidewater Tales”; and he thought “the only worthwhile book published in the past twenty years” was a novel by the Irish writer John McGahern. He also admired the poet Patrick Kavanagh, who had written the first anti-Joyce-industry poem, in 1951:

“What weapon was used / To slay mighty Ulysses? / The weapon that was used / Was a Harvard thesis.”
