Eric Wagner has completed 'Straight Outta Dublin'

A recent photo of Eric Wagner, posted at the website for the Hilaritas Podcast interview of him. 

Eric Wagner reports that he has finished his revisions of Straight Outta Dublin, his book about James Joyce and Joyce's influence on Robert Anton Wilson. I don't have publication news yet.

Eric is of course the author of An Insider's Guide to Robert Anton Wilson; I carry a Kindle of the latest edition around on my phone. He finished a draft of Straight Outta Dublin a year or two ago. I read that early draft last year and offered suggestions; he's gotten feedback from at least one other person. He then set about on revisions and completed them recently.

Eric has been working on Straight Outta Dublin for years (he discussed it in this 2010 interview), so I'm really pleased it's completed and look forward to publication, which I hope will be reasonably soon. 

Eric has read Ulysses many times and has been active in Finnegans Wake discussion groups. If you buy An Insider's Guide to Robert Anton Wilson, be sure you purchase the 2020 second edition; copies of the older first edition are still floating around.
