About this book

Brivic argues that James Joyce's fiction anticipated Jacques Lacan's idea that the perceivable world is made of language and that Joyce, Lacan, and Žižek all carry forward a psychological and linguistic groundwork for social reform.

Reviews

"[A] hugely enjoyable book...The expanding universe of Zizekian interpretation opens up to the judicious critic who, armed with Brivic's great knowledge of all things Joycean, can re-launch the sinthome, now freed from its cryptic vault and able to address many aspects of Joycean experience." - The James Joyce Quarterly
