A Tale of Two Daughters. . .

Over at the wonderful Dovegreyreader Scribbles blog, there's a write-up of Dottor Of Her Father's Eyes, an  intriguing coming-of-age graphic novel about two daughters - Lucia Joyce, the troubled daughter of James Joyce, and Mary M. Talbot, the author herself, who was the daughter of an abusive Joycean scholar.  You can read dovegreyreader's blog post here and see some of the artwork, created by Mary's husband Bryan.  It doesn't seem to be available yet in Canada, but I'll be on the look-out as I'm always intrigued by narratives about living with writers or the writing life.
