Description

ReJOYCE! To commemorate James Joyce's mighty novel, Ulysses, we're launching a podcast. Every week you'll find a five-minute mini-essay from me designed to take you through the novel that's on every list of the greatest books ever written. And as Ulysses runs to some 375,000 words, and I mean to go through it sentence by sentence if I have to, in order to convey the full brilliance of this novel - and the enjoyment to be had from it - I'll be podcasting for some time to come! It's such an absorbing book, it's got diamond mines of references, it's so compassionate, so tender, so moving, so funny - and most of us never know that, because most of us have long been daunted by it. No need to be afraid any more - that is, if you make a habit of listening to these podcasts.

Best cheerleader

This book really needs a cheerleader, and Frank is something of the ideal professor giving his favorite lecture: excited, enthusiastic, passionate and engaging. His no-holds-barred decision stop and make a new podcast every few sentences is hilarious, given that the book is over 700pp! We all may be dead before he finishes, but it will be fun to listen to and see how far he gets.

It works for me, as I haven't been reading much faster than this, anyway. It's been slow going, even with an annotated guide at hand, and Frank helps give a fresh perspective and a bit of much-needed cameraderie on the journey...

The most entertaining and educational five minutes of my week.

Every week, Frank moves digs another paragraph deeper into Ulysses. I've never read the book, but I am now hooked - Frank's insight and commentary is deep, involved, and hilarious. It will probably take him fifteen years to get through the whole thing - if he keeps it up the whole way, I'll keep listening.

Wonderful

Every great book should have a podcast like this one. Looking forward to this literary journey with Mr. Delaney at my side. His love for Ulysses is positively infectious.
