Publisher's Summary

Often cited as the best work of short fiction ever written, Joyce's elegant story details a New Year's Eve gathering in Dublin that is so evocative and beautiful that it prompts the protagonist's wife to make a shocking revelation to her husband - closing the story with an emotionally powerful epiphany that is unsurpassed in modern literature."The Dead" is the final short story in Joyce's 1914 collection Dubliners. It is the longest story in the collection and widely considered to be one of the greatest short stories in the English language.

It's Joyce well read…

Uncertain of Joyce? Well, don't be… Uncertain of the narrator? Rest easy…

Slow to develop but with a powerful punch at the end, this is True Art…

Not manipulative but manifest…

Great short listen - tension builds at the end!

Nice short read - nice introduction to James Joyce without taking on one of the longer books. Tension really builds and I could not stop listening at the end. The reader's Irish accent adds something but I found it a bit hard to understand sometimes.
