Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. 

The stories and performers are:

Sisters - Frank McCourt

An Encounter - Patrick McCabe

Araby - Colm Meaney

Eveline - Dearbhla Molloy

After the Race - Dan O'Herlihy

Two Gallants - Malachy McCourt

The Boarding House - Donal Donnelly

A Little Cloud - Brendan Coyle

Counterparts - Jim Norton

Clay - Sorcha Cusack

A Painful Case - Ciaran Hinds

Ivy Day in the Committee Room - T.P. McKenna

A Mother - Fionnula Flanagan

Grace - Charles Keating

The Dead - Stephen Rea

 

Review:

"Frank and Malachy McCourt and 13 Irish actors bring Joyce's short stories to life in this well-produced audiobook. None of the readers employ a thick accent in the narrative portions, but for dialogue they let their imitative talents shine and their Irish lilts bloom. Brendan Coyle and Charles Keating, reading 'A Little Cloud' and 'Grace' respectively, give such wonderful expression to the idiosyncrasies of every individual voice that the listener is never confused even when numerous men are talking. Joyce wrote only sparingly in actual dialect, but most of the readers interpret his intentions freely and successfully. Fionnula Flanagan is perfect reading 'A Mother,' her voice shifting easily between prim and proper tones and fiery indignation punctuated with little sighs. It helps that Joyce's writing is so masterful that when Flanagan and the two other actresses read the three stories that revolve around women, their words sound utterly natural. Not all the performances are on the same level — Stephen Rea's cold, somber voice is apt for the meditative beginning and ending sections of the collection's most famous story, 'The Dead,' but too flat for the central description of a lively party. This audiobook creates the atmosphere of a fireside storytelling session that will hold any listener in rapt attention."

About the Author

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce was born in Dublin in 1882. One of the most influential writers of the 20th Century, Joyce's life was punctuated by poverty, critical controversy and self-imposed exile. Joyce was one of the pioneering figures of modernism and counted W.B. Yeats and Ezra Pound amongst his earliest supporters. Before his death in 1941, Joyce had published Ulysses, Finnegan's Wake, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Dubliners; works that today are recognized as amongst the greatest achievements in literature.Malachy McCourt, sixty-nine, is the father of five children, and the grandfather of three. He lives with his wife, Diana, in New York City.
