Dreaming of a home away from home during the lockdown? If you’re the seafaring type, Shel Silverstein‘’s rustic houseboat is currently on the market—and the perfect spot to write your celebrated collection of children’s poetry. According to Apartment Therapy, “the home is a perfect combination of new and old. The main room that greets you upon entering the houseboat uses reclaimed architectural features such as antique windows and shiplap-like panelling to give the feeling as though you’ve entered the belly of a pirate ship.”
When, in 1921, a young French writer working as a translator for James Joyce asked the writer to reveal his schema for Ulysses, Joyce balked, saying that “If I gave it all up immediately, I’d lose my immortality.” What he meant, at least in part, is that he wanted his opus to be relevant in perpetuity. At Full-Stop, Dustin Illingworth reads Ulysses on Twitter and asks: can the book survive the transition from the page to social media? Pair with: Josh Cook on The House of Ulysses by Julian Rios.
