9780140042283: Joyce James : Finnegans Wake

Presented as the story of Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker, a Dublin tavern-keeper, this novel has as its theme a cyclical pattern of fall and resurrection. It takes the form of a dream-sequence representing the stream of Earwicker's unconscious mind through the course of one night.

Review:

'Listening to Jim Norton and Marcella Riordan is a lot easier than trying to read the book.' --The Guardian

It's estimated that a complete recording of this eccentric masterpiece would run to about 20 CDs, but Naxos has made an attractive abridgement in four, recorded with wit and clarity by Jim Norton and Marcella Riordan. I've never met anyone who has actually managed to read every page of this extraordinary book...and there can be little doubt that Joyce intended his work to be listened to as much as read. This brilliant recording is the perfect short cut for slackers, poseurs and insomniacs. --Robert McCrum, The Observer

Book Description:
