In Collection: The James Joyce - Paul Léon Papers, 1930-1940.
Description: Dear Mr Monro, Mr Léon has read me over the telephone your letter about Mr Pinker. If he claims commission in perpetuity for work he never did and if he is entitled legally to draw this commission he can have it. My sole object is to get rid of this agency. It was never worth a pinch of salt to me. At the present moment I foresee the usual programme of incompetence, pusillanimity and tergiversation with the three men in a boat who have taken over the derelict S.O.S. John Lane and, in spite of the proverb, I think that three sheeps heads are better than four. It takes me, it seems, from eight to fifteen years to write a book. I never write for any review for money and no correspondence will come to my ex-agent except and occasional from a village idiot who wants to set to music one of my meagre poems. The fee is a guinea, I think, and my ex-agent may keep the change. What is important is that the new contract should be drawn up and signed after it has been passed by me here as satisfactory. Mr Pinker's intervention is quite useless and will probably even be positively harmful. Sincerely yours James Joyce.
