Joyce and His Son, Giorgio
A family gift: James Joyce was an award-winning tenor--and may have lived a life as singer had he not become a writer. Music figures prominently in his poetry (Chamber Music) and novels. His son, Giorgio, was a baritone.
And the Dog, Too
The dog, Schiap, is named after the Parisian fashion designer, Elsa Schiaparelli, who gave the dog to the Joyces.
The look on Joyce's face is one of defeat. He had asked that Nora join the entire family for the picture, but she resolutely said no, saying, "I'm nobody."
Freund captioned this photograph: "Totally defeated, Joyce turned away."
