>>"If you think of Ulysses as
Joyce's mansion," he says in an AP story, "and each of the rooms as each
of the episodes, I went in and opened the windows, let in the light and
air, cleaned out the cobwebs so we could view with awe and admiration the
beauty of the architecture and the exquisite craftsmanship of the
furniture."<<

Intriguing stuff! What about an improved edition of Ada for the common
reader? If the undertaking is successful with the public, we might look
forward eventually to the rewriting of VN's entire oeuvre.
