James Joyce, the author of Ulysses, lived in Zurich from 1915 to 1919, at Universitä tsstrasse 38. In 1941 he returned to Zurich from Paris, only a month before his death. Near his tomb is a statue depicting the great Irish writer sitting cross-legged with a book in his hand. Elias Canetti , winner of the Nobel Prize for literature in 1981, died in August 1994; his grave lies to the left of Joyce's. The grave of Johanna Spiri (1827-1901), who wrote the famous story Heidi, is in the Central Cemetery.
