Czeslaw Milosz covers his mouth.

May Swenson writes this in her diary:

Thanks to The Paris Review for the note on this photo of Joyce.

He called his crew of bohemian buddies The Water Drinkers and explained it was because they could not afford to drink wine. In most biographies of Murger they include this note.

He wrote this:

Jacques’ family was not a rich one, and he did not have a grave of his own.

He is buried somewhere.

Downtown San Francisco has a bunch of POPOS, or privately owned public open spaces and this is one of them. A rooftop terrace above Crocker Galleria. Nestled right in the middle of Fidi. Great view.
