Joyce and Hemingway: A Convenient Friendship

The name James Joyce might bring to mind lofty literature, influential writing, or the name Ulysses (Joyce’s most famous novel), but generally we wouldn’t take Joyce to be a rambunctious rough and rowdy type. However, apparently when Joyce spent nights out on the town he occasionally took to drinking with literary great Ernest Hemingway (author of novels such as For Whom the Bell Tolls), and what happened when he got into a drunken scrape or fight? It seems Joyce knew exactly how to deal with the situation – according to this charming video which details Joyce’s occasional reactions to these skirmishes. Now that’s what I call a convenient friendship! :)
