image for Joyce's ADD and not talent made him a genius

Mt Laurel, New Jersey (ADDA Headquarters) - Irish writer James Joyce suffered from a case of severe adult Attention Deficit Disorder, causing him to lose track of what in hell he was even trying to get at while writing.

"Sometimes he would get distracted mid-sentence, sometimes mid-word..." mentioned member and current President of the Attention Deficit Disorder Association, Lindy Lowdermilk. "...I'm sorry, where was I?"

Credited with writing Finnegans Wake in seventeen years, James Joyce died prior to his 59th birthday in 1941. Nowadays, his condition could have been treated with stimulant medications (some banned in Canada) thereby sparing the literary world his creative genius.
