"One Thousand and One Nights in a Bar-Room"

"One Thousand and One Nights in a Bar-Room:  Or The Irish Odysseus" is an article/review by Matthew Josephson on/of the book Ulysses by James Joyce.

It begins on page 146 of the journal Broom (from September 1922) which you can read for free here:

It is interesting to me for its title only, the review speaks at great length as to how Joyce's Ulysses is nothing more than 700+ pages of drunk people in a bar talking.

It has nothing to do with the Nights apart from its title, however, just another interesting mention.

Broom was a journal of the arts in the US, published in the early 20th century -

Josephson was a writer from New York.
