The sixteenth of June is the one hundredth anniversary of 'Bloomsday,' the day on which James Joyce set Ulysses, perhaps the most important novel of the twentieth century.

To celebrate that anniversary, three Joyce enthusiasts revisit the book and its author.

In this first programme, author Edna O'brien explores the fictional and the real women in James Joyce's life, from his mother to Molly Bloom.
