Publisher's Summary

James Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet. His short story "The Dead", the concluding story in Dubliners, often considered as one of the best works of short fiction, concerns a Christmas-time gathering in Dublin. With a beautiful use of language and the epiphany common to all the stories in Dubliners, this book will remain in your thoughts long after the final emotional passages.

    Story
    "Hauntingly beautiful tale, masterfully narrated!"

    When James Joyce invites us to this intimate gathering, he also lets us into his heart. And Dubliner Tadhg Hynes enlivens each character with tenderness and wit.

    In fact, the story hardly seems narrated at all. It's as if an old friend is confiding a treasured memory in Joyce's own cadences. Each character is illuminated. Every droll comment shines. Most important, the warmth of the reading awakens profound empathy and a sense of wonder.

    Just listen to the sample of the narration.. I believe that you, too, will feel the magic!
