Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Joyce Museum in Trieste are very proud of the letter they have in which joyce announced to Svevo that hs has completeted "Ulysses o sua madre Greca", which the owner translated as "Ulysses or that fucking book"
' You wont' find this on the interenet (unless they index my post), but telling someone that they have a Greek mother is one of the worst insults in Triestine dialect (a Triestine colleague confirmed this). On the other hand, Ulysses, being Greek, probably did have a Greek mother.
