You can read about a new docmentary entitled
"Following James Joyce ... Dublin to Buffalo" here.

An excerpt:

The film traces the Irish-born author's travels from
Dublin to Paris and to Pola, Croatia; Trieste, Italy;
and Zurich, Switzerland -- all cities where he
made his home at some point. It charts also the
fate of two collections of Joyce's manuscripts,
notebooks, private library, correspondence and
family portraits -- one rescued from wartime
Paris, a second procured from Joyce's friend and
publisher, Sylvia Beach -- as they made their way
to an unlikely final destination: Buffalo.
