Publisher's Summary

"His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead." A sentimental song performed at a Christmas party brings back the memory of a lost love in this extraordinary short story, widely regarded as one of the greatest ever written. The textured language of Joyce's richly-drawn Dubliners comes to life in this masterful reading, which also includes "Ivy Day in the Committee Room."

Critic Reviews

  • Winner of Publishers Weekly 1993 Best of the Year Award, Short Story.

"...Setlok does a superb job with the dialogue, with the incredible sensuality of Joyce's work, the telling detail, the moments of irretrievable loss." (Audio File)
