Royal Sauce, from local chef Malik Robertson and his business partner April Bebel, serves American comfort food we all likely know and love—smashburgers, patty melts, grilled cheese, plus a chicken and pineapple quesadilla—but with a bevy of dynamic sauces to choose from to keep patrons on their toes. “It’s all nostalgic stuff that you can reach for with your eyes closed,” says Robertson, who has classic French culinary training and whose C.V. includes stops at The Chasseur, The Smoking Swine, and Dizzy Cow Pizzeria.

BALTIMORE (WBFF) — A once-popular pub in Harbor East will soon be springing to life again. The James Joyce pub shut down in December of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the Baltimore-based Atlas Group says it plans to reopen the restaurant. There is no opening date yet.

Should Dublin Airport be renamed after James Joyce or Enya?

That’s (kind of) the question being debated back in my homeland today as the country continues to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the publication of Ulysses, unabashed fart-enthusiast James Joyce’s modernist magnum opus about one man’s odyssey through Dublin on an ordinary day in 1904. Jim O’Callaghan,...

Major collection of James Joyce documents and books donated to university

A telegram sent by Samuel Beckett to James Joyce on his 49th birthday, 91 years ago today, has been given to the University of Reading by Joyce’s grandson and his wife. The missive, in which the Waiting for Godot author tells his friend: “Teems of times and happy returns. Beckett”, is part of a major collection of books and documents given by Stephen James Joyce and his wife Solange to the university. The donation, which also includes a photograph of Solange and Stephen James Joyce at their wedding, with an awkward-looking Beckett, who was the best man, was announced to mark the centenary of the publication in Paris of Joyce’s seminal novel Ulysses, as well as the 140th anniversary of Joyce’s birth.

At the movies with James Joyce – and his crabs

1922 saw the publication of Ulysses in February – 100 years ago to this day – and The Waste Land in October. These two texts are among the greatest achievements in prose and poetry of the modernist movement, and some crabbier critics might argue that it’s been largely downhill since then.

Unseen letters will give a portrait of James Joyce as a young man

James Joyce’s coveted personal letters will finally be revealed, as the grandson who guarded his estate “with a vengeance” leaves literary treasures to the University of Reading. Stephen James Joyce was his grandfather’s executor and policed his legacy by battling with biographers, seeking to block academics from...

100 Years Ago Today James Joyce’s “Ulysses” Was Born

Ocumenting the birth of Ulysses in James Joyce (1959), Richard Ellman suggests that the day of publication “was becoming, in Joyce’s superstitious mind, talismanic.” If anything, there was more of the manic than talismanic in Joyce’s insistence that his 40th birthday, February 2, 1922, absolutely had to coincide with the birth of his creation. As the day approached, he fired off letters and telegrams and made frantic phone calls to Sylvia Beach, his publisher (formerly of Library Place in Princeton), and to Maurice Darantière, the printer, who was based some 300 kilometers from Paris in Dijon.

The Book Pages: James Joyce at 100, plus 10 Noteworthy authors and books

Back when I attended Claremont Graduate University, I remember wanting to take a class that spent an entire semester on James Joyce’s “Ulysses” but I couldn’t because the time conflicted with my job. Let’s all assume the sting of this disappointment is why I have yet to read the book – seen as one of the great feats of modernism – and not that it just seemed, you know, hard to read. (Though I’ll leave it to you to decide which is the real reason.)
