Celebrate Bloomsday with Leopold Bloom King
June 16th, 2010
Fans of James Joyce will recognize today, June 16th, as Bloomsday, the day on which the action of his novel Ulysses takes place. The celebration takes its name from the central character of Joyce’s novel, Leopold Bloom. Fans of Pat Conroy will recognize today as Bloomsday, too, after reading his sumptuous and sprawling novel, South of Broad, which follows the life of one Leo Bloom King. Alison’s Book Marks reviews the book here.
