For more than a decade, the book now considered the most important novel in the English language was illegal to sell, advertise or import. Its author lived in exile; his supporters on the edge of the law.
The Most Dangerous Book tells the painful yet exhilarating story of how Joyce's Ulysses was conceived, written, published, burned, acclaimed and excoriated before taking its place as a masterpiece of world literature.
