THE CATS OF COPENHAGEN
Exquisite, surprising, and with a keen, almost anarchic subtext, THE CATS OF COPENHAGEN is a children's story pedded in a letter posted to James Joyce's only grandchild, Stephen James Joyce. At the time of writing, Joyce was taking a much-needed break in Denmark and four-year-old Stephen was staying at the Villa des Roses in Menthon-St-Bernard. Translated from the text of the original manuscript letter dated 5th September, 1936, the letter was found among the many items donated to the Zurich James Joyce Foundation by Hans E. Jahnke, son of Giorgio Joyce’s second wife, Asta. Nearly lost and forgotten, it is a joy to see this delightful story in print at last. Illustrator Casey Sorrow has brought life to Joyce’s curious ‘Københavnere’ with ingeniously playful pen-and-ink drawings, specially commissioned, and printed by typographique cliché.
