TRAVESTIES
London: Faber and Faber, 1975. First UK Edition. From an obscure footnote in Ulysses, Stoppard spins a fantastically elaborate scenario: A minor British consular official named Henry Carr reminisces about Zürich in 1917 during the First World War, and his interactions with James Joyce (when he was writing Ulysses), Tristan Tzara (during the rise of Dada), and Lenin (before the Russian Revolution).
