James Joyce and Italo Svevo – The Story of a Friendship: Stanley Price

Jewish Book Week 2017
Spoken Word / Sunday, 5 March 2017 - 6:30pm / St Pancras Room
£9.50* / Multi-Event Discount Available

James Joyce and Italo Svevo met in Trieste in 1907 when Joyce was Svevo’s English teacher at the Berlitz School. Their friendship endured the political and cultural upheavals of the early 20th century and is explored in rich detail in this elegant new book by Stanley Price.

Their story has a fascinating supporting cast including: Yeats and Shaw, Proust and Hemingway, Freud and Jung, Eliot and Wells. When Ulysses was published in Paris in 1922, its success enabled Joyce to introduce Svevo to those who would recognise the great comedic genius of The Confessions of Zeno. European literature owes a great deal to their meeting.

Stanley Price is in conversation with the author and critic Philip Hensher.


Stanley Price is a novelist and playwright. He went to school in Dublin and London, read history at Cambridge University, and then worked as a journalist in London and New York. He has written four novels, five stage plays, and numerous television plays, two of which Close Relations and Genghis Cohn have won international awards. He has also written two works of non-fiction, Somewhere to Hang my Hat, An Irish-Jewish Journey and The Road to Apocalypse (with Munro Price.)

Philip Hensher is a critically acclaimed novelist, journalist and broadcaster, a regular contributor to many leading newspapers and journals. His books are about a wide variety of subjects, often against a background of historical change, whether at the fall of the Berlin Wall (Pleasured), the First Afghan War (The Mulberry Empire), the war of Bangladeshs independence (Scenes from Early Life) or over a long period of change in recent English history (The Northern Clemency). He is Professor of Creative Writing at Bath Spa University.
