She remained with him until his death thirty-seven years later, bearing him two children, governing a succession of unruly households in Trieste, Paris, and Zurich, holding him and the family together through the force of her own formidable pluck. Most importantly for Joyces work, Nora served as his portable Ireland, his living link to the homeland he used as the basis for his masterpieces.
