Lucia Joyce

“With admirable narrative control, this debut novel depicts its narrator, Lucia, James Joyce’s daughter, losing control to ‘ungovernable emotions’. The immensely gripping story skilfully oscillates between Zurich, 1934, where Lucia is having excruciatingly tense sessions as a patient of Dr Carl Jung, and the devastating tale of how, in late 1920s Paris, her life unravelled.”
