Dotter Of Her Father’s Eyes Makes It Into The Independent’s Books Of the Year

The Independent has named Mary and Bryan Talbot‘s Dotter Of Her Father’s Eyes, already shortlisted for the Costa Book Award, in their Memoirs Of The Year.

Just before Salman Rusdie‘s Joseph Anton, they report;

Dotter of her Father’s Eyes (Jonathan Cape, £14.99), Mary M Talbot and Bryan Talbot’s graphic novel, weaves two father-daughter stories together; the thwarted ambitions of Lucia Joyce, the fledging dancer and daughter of James Joyce, who ended up committed to an asylum after she was kept from realising her talents, is spliced with the early life of author Mary Talbot, whose father, James S Atherton – a Joycean scholar – was no less the “cold mad feary father” of Finnegans Wake. Shortlisted for the Costa Award, this is a sad and stunning book which reflects the literary heights to which the graphic novel can rise.

It’s the only comic or graphic novel that the Independent lists in any of its lists of Best Books.
