James Joyce was an Irish writer who is considered to be one of the most influential authors of the twentieth century. Joyce only wrote three novels, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake, but each of them are still widely read today. Finnegans Wake was Joyce's last novel. The book is especially significant due to its experimental style and the fact that Joyce wrote it over the course of seventeen years.

'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
Finnegans Wake, by James Joyce, is one of the central texts of twentieth-century literature, now in an edition incorporating Joyce's own alterations and corrections to the first printing in 1939.
