Novelist, journalist and broadcaster Frank Delaney talks about his fellow countryman, the great Irish novelist, James Joyce.

Delaney’s first book, James Joyce’s Odyssey, was published in 1981 to critical acclaim and was a bestseller in the UK, the US and Ireland. More recently in 2010, he set off on his own odyssey to produce a short weekly podcast, Re:Joyce, to address Joyce’s novel Ulysses. The weekly podcast is a phrase-by-phrase deconstruction of the text, is a 15-year project, and to date has attracted two million downloads.

Delaney was a newsreader for Irish state radio and television, then a BBC reporter in the early 1970s. He moved to London to work in arts broadcasting, creating the weekly Bookshelf programmes and Word of Mouth on Radio 4, and interviewing hundreds of leading authors. Delaney also wrote and presented for the Omnibus arts television programme, for a number of documentaries on leading writers including Joyce, and in the 1980s hosted his own late-night television series, Frank Delaney on BBC2. He has written more than 20 books, including novels and works of non-fiction, now lives in the US, and is currently a PhD student at Oxford Brookes University.

Here he talks to Dr Alex Goody, reader in 20th-century literature and research director at Oxford Brookes University.
