Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man
Publisher: Naxos Audiobooks
Date: July 2005
Duration: 8 hours 23 minutes
This fictionalised portrait of Joyce's youth is one of the most vivid accounts of the growth from childhood to adulthood. Dublin at the turn of the century provides the backdrop as Stephen Dedalus moves from town and society, towards the irrevocable decision to leave. It was the decision made by Joyce himself which resulted in the mature novels Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. Read unabridged by the incomparable Joyce expert, Jim Norton.
