Summary
Dubliners - James Joyce's stories of his native homeland - performed by a cast of 15 different actors originating from Ireland.  Unabridged.

The fifteen stories that make up this brilliant audio roam over a human landscape that stretches from the bleakest of despair to the most blinding of epiphanies.  First published in 1914, the stories are as lucid and accessible as they are memorable poignant.

As you listen to the cast of internationally famous stage and screen actors perform Dubliners, both the spiritually deadening atmosphere that drove Joyce from his homeland and the irresistible emotional pull it always kept on him to the end of his days become heartbreakingly beautiful.

Dubliners is an audio experience that will only grow in richness with each time you listen.

It's Joyce. It's amazing. Great selection of narrators. Excellent place to start on Joyce if you're a first-timer.

This is an interesting collection of short stories - or vignettes is perhaps a better way to describe them. There are some stories where there really seems to be an ending, and others where it's almost as if the reader walked in and out of a conversation. It was interesting listening in the car, particularly as the narrators are Irish. I'm not sure the stories would be nearly as poignant on the printed page.
