Summary

Penguin Classics presents James Joyce’s Dubliners, adapted for audio and available as a digital download as part of the Penguin English Library series.
"Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears.... But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work."
From a child grappling with the death of a fallen priest, to a young woman’s dilemma over whether to elope to Argentina with her lover, to the dance party at which a man discovers just how little he really knows about his wife, these 15 stories bring the gritty realism of existence in Joyce’s native Dublin to life.
With Dubliners, James Joyce reinvented the art of fiction, using a scrupulous, deadpan realism to convey truths that were at once blasphemous and sacramental.
Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
