This Penguin Classic is performed by Andrew Scott, star of Sherlock, Fleabag and Black Mirror, also known for his on-stage roles in Present Laughter and Hamlet. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Terence Brown.

Joyce's first major work, written when he was only twenty-five, brought his city to the world for the first time. His stories are rooted in the rich detail of Dublin life, portraying ordinary, often defeated lives with unflinching realism. He writes of social decline, sexual desire and exploitation, corruption and personal failure, yet creates a brilliantly compelling, unique vision of the world and of human experience.

'Scott's intonation and pacing made the book really easy to follow, and the fact that every chapter is a full story kept me engaged for much longer than if I was reading it on the page.' i News

Andrew Scott has the ability to weave an intricate web of delicate sweet sounds, a heartfelt sigh, a whisper of sorrow, a breath barely taken, an absolute auditory delight, with the slightest movement of his tongue. Add to that the very talented writings of Mr. James Joyce and you have the exact recipe for deliciously intriguing and captivating stories that hold your attention and keep you on the very edge until the last breath of the last word is timelessly spoken revealing the last part of the story. Every. Single. Time. Bravo!
