Yes, Michael is a very fine scholar, and I think he was born within 
shouting distance of the Canadian border, so the Northward pull must 
have been irresistible.  The bookcases of his home have been featured in 
some Canadian magazines as well...  He does good work.

I have a piece in Corinne's most recent book that gently muses over 
genetic criticism, which is still largely a French activity outside of 
the Joyce scholarship.  My co-author Michael Stevens, a young scholar at 
Trinity College Dublin, did very good work on that piece.  The Joyce 
scholars are doing more with genetic criticism than anyone else in 20th 
Century literature, so far as I can see.
