Omtale: Joyce and the G-Men
Several years ago on a whim, Culleton requested James Joyce's FBI file. Hoover had Joyce under surveillance as a suspected Communist, and the chain of cross references that Culleton followed from Joyce's file lead her to obscenity trials and, less obviously, to a plot to assassinate Irish labour leader Philip Larkin. However devoted a great deal of energy to keeping watch on intellectuals and considered literature to be dangerous on a number of levels. Joyce and the G Men explores how these linkages are indicative of the culture of the FBI under Hoover, and the resurgence of American anti intellectualism.
