Today I met Guzyal from Kazakhstan and her Italian husband Luciano. They have opened a new restaurant in Fuengirola serving an International menu.

I had never met anybody from Kazakhstan. Guzyal is absolutely charming. She and her husband Luciano speak perfect English and she is working hard and doing a great job with her Spanish.

I sampled some of their treats: (All full of surprises)

A simple mini Burger mix tapa in a green bun. Had not seen that before!

Curry Chicken croquet tapa. Both accompanied with nutty bread.

Tuna tartar especially marinated and combined with avocado cream, wasabi and Wakame mayonnaise.


Risotto with zucchini in Italian style.

I was not really that hungry when I called in. 

I was absolutely stuffed with gourmet food when I came out.

They are a lovely couple and are being helped by a Spanish cook and Francesca the waitress from Italy. 

The ambiance is uncluttered and the walls are adorned with original artworks.

Well worth a visit.

Two Poems by Roger Thomas Cummiskey






Is Love Really in the Air?

Love, I love you
I really love you
I really, really love you
I said I love you
Of course I love you
Sure, I love you
Believe me, I love you
Definitely, I love you
Yes, I love you
But, … do you love me?

ROGER  THOMAS CUMMISKEY, POET.

Two poems by Roger Thomas Cummiskey typed on Indian hand made paper using various fonts and sizes.


Truth:

A truth
Cut to the truth
Examine the truth
Fuck the truth
Get the truth
Here’s the truth
In truth
Is it the truth?
Just the truth
Kiss the truth
Love the truth
Make the truth
Nothing but the truth
Oh, the truth?
Quick truth
Real truth
See truth
Tell the truth
The whole truth
True truth
Untruth
Your truth
True?

James Joyce Newsletter

James Joyce Newsletter
January 2017


Mr Bloom by Roger Cummiskey.

Ulysses for All
at the James Joyce Centre


Christmas is over, the tree's in the skip and it's time to make good on your New Year's resolutions! What better way to start your 2017 than by taking on the task of reading Ulysses in time for Bloomsday?

Join us in February at the James Joyce Centre for the return of our popular lifelong learning course, Ulysses for All. Led by Dubliner and Joycean Caroline Elbay, the group will work through the episodes of Joyce’s masterpiece in a structured, accessible and relaxed environment. Beginning on Wednesday 1 February, the course runs over 18 weeks and will finish ahead of Bloomsday on 7 June – just in time for you to boast to the pretenders in costume that you’ve actually read the book! Joyce’s epic has a reputation for inaccessibility and difficulty, but Ulysses for All aims to show that this perception is far from accurate and when the book is read in a structured way it is not only comprehensible but full of humour, insight and beauty.

This year, the Ulysses for All group will be treated to all kinds of bonus events and speakers, including talks by John McCourt and Anne Taylor and even a walking tour of the historic Monto district of Dublin with historian Terry Fagan. So come along and find out why Ulysses For All is the most popular Joycean course in the city!

Departure date: 1 February 2017, 6-8pm (thereafter the group meets each Wednesday from 6-8pm at the Centre)

Arrival date: 7 June 2017

Cost: €160 for 18 weeks / €140 for students, seniors (60+) and the unwaged

'Ulysses in 1917'
Dr Luca Crispi


We're excited to kick off our Spring/Summer Lecture Series on 6 February with UCD's Dr Luca Crispi, who will discuss the progress that Joyce made in the development of his opus Ulysses one hundred years ago. Dr Crispi's lectures are always a fascinating insight into Joyce's creative process and this one is sure to help explain how Joyce took a simple idea and developed it into an encyclopaedic masterpiece. We'll also be belatedly celebrating Joyce's birthday (2 February) with a wine reception following the lecture!

Event begins at 6:30PM sharp. Places are free but limited - click here or call us on 01 878 8547 to book your place.

'James Joyce is Alive and Well and Living in Paris'
Anne Taylor


We're delighted to welcome one of our favourite regular visitors Anne Taylor to come talk at the Centre for the first time this February 15. Anne will discuss Joyce's life in Paris and the circle of friends and family that surrounded him in the twenties and thirties as he saw first the publication of Ulysses in 1922 and subsequently began work on his final novel Finnegans Wake.

Anne's delivery style is unique - as much a performance as a talk - so this is one not to be missed! Places are free but limited - click here or call us on 01 878 8547 to book.
