Description - Exiles by James Joyce
It's the summer of 1912. Back in Dublin after nine years abroad, Richard, a successful writer, and Bertha, his wife, have to confront two other people who love them, and ask themselves questions about guilt and responsibility. Will infidelity hold them together? This startlingly modern picture of marriage is based in part on Joyce's own relationship with Nora Barnacle while the story of a renowned writer returning to Dublin after nine years of self-imposed exile also reflects Joyce's experience.
