Martin Starr Reads James Joyce's Absolutely Filthy Love Letter

Martin Starr Reads James Joyce's Filthy Love Letter

James Joyce's literary career was marked by controversy, as many of his contemporaries saw works like Ulysses and Dubliners as obscene and shockingly frank. Joyce was even put on trial for a scene in Ulysses involving masturbation.

Even considering that, a recent video by Funny or Die, where Freaks and Geeks and Party Down star Martin Starr reads a letter Joyce wrote to his wife, Nora, in 1909, shows that Joyce may have been holding back with Ulysses. (Joyce's love letters previously covered HERE.)
