Return to "Joycean Writers" page.
- While Joyce is a favorite author of mine, I do not consider myself "largely inspired" by him. His influence, a different matter than "inspiration," is probably inescapable for anyone writing prose fiction in English today, even those who've never read a sentence of Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and Ulysses. A cursory reading of Journey to the End of the Fashion Club and Where's Mary Sue shows that L.F. Céline and William Gaddis respectively were obvious insprirations for those works—to say nothing of the Daria fan author posing as "Sandi Griffin" for the former, and C.E. Forman for the latter. Hence my removing my name from this list. —ScissorsMacGillicutty 12:20, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
