Publisher's Summary

Finnegans Wake, the greatest avant-garde novel of all time, was first published 70 years ago - and people are still trying to work out what it is about. There is Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker - aka HCE (Here Comes Everyone) - and Anna Livia Plurabelle, but also Finnegan the hod carrier (or was he a giant?), whose wake is the subject of the book. This is a masterly reading of the abridged version, with copious notes aiding comprehension.


What the Critics Say

"Listening to Jim Norton and Marcella Riordan is a lot easier than trying to read the book." (The Guardian)

this is the best audio version by far

if you want to understand and enjoy FW this is a must have.

FW is the craziest deepest and funniest book ever written....satirical in. a warm Irish way......totally existential and so human.

without this audio version you'll struggle to follow the book....enjoy!
