I’ve finally dived into James Joyce’s Ulysses and have been overwhelmed by the inventiveness of his word play. Reading a book of such genius gets my own mind wandering to puns and new ways of putting words together… in a much less focused way than Joyce, of course. There’s no evidence of genius here, but maybe some of it’s a little fun.
