"Dubliners" is a mosaic of life in that city near the turn of the last century. Sometimes poignant, sometimes wickedly funny, sometimes soaring, it includes people up and down the social scale, but mostly down. Many of the characters return in Joyce's later novels "Portrait of the Artist" and "Ulysses."
Gerry O'Brien, as he showed in "Portrait," is a wonderful narrator and is particularly wonderful with Joyce. There is something light and seemingly effortless about his reading, right up to the last haunting sentence of the last story, "The Dead."
I hope he's able at some point to record "Ulysses" as well. I can't imagine anybody I'd rather listen to, or any narrator I'd be more willing to trust it to.
