James, Lucia, and Nora Joyce with Eugene Jolas, 1932
After James Joyce’s death, Nora’s abandonment of Lucia became callously clear. For the last 12 years of her life, Nora never visited her daughter in her English asylum. It appears that she never wrote to her and that she begrudged the expenditure on her daughter’s hospitals and carers
