Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This masterpiece presents a provocative challenge to the audiobook producer and narrator…Its narrative matures as the character, the author in disguise, matures. Just how does one present that orally?…Naxos has cast a single voice, Jim Norton, who delivers the entire narrative in a single tone of gentle, god-like detachment. In dialogue passages, the characters roar to life in all their stormy Celtic vigor. Thus, Norton takes us inside the soul of the sensitive protagonist while amplifying the color and beauty of Joyce’s writing. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
