Golden greats of feel-good depression

James Joyce

Thought to be one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century, James Joyce is a key figure in the modernist movement. He is an Irish writer whose stories always take place in Ireland; however, he actually left the country at 22, returning infrequently. He is best known for his landmark novel Ulysses, an extremely difficult and intricate story taking place on June 16, 1904. His other major works are the short story collection Dubliners and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake.

Proudly not duking the stats since 2002. "Their music takes you on a very long walk, punctuated by storms and lulls. Towards that distant land whose name is Australia." ( centrifugue.fr ) Eleventh He Reaches London hail from Perth, Western Australia; a vast area of land separated from the rest of the country by an expanse of desert. This isolation has afforded Eleventh the luxury of being able to grow organically, independent of trends often present in larger communities.
