628 pages. Softcover. Good condition. FICTION. A story with no real beginning or end (it ends in the middle of a sentence and begins in the middle of the same sentence), this "book of Doublends Jined" is as remarkable for its prose as for its circular structure. Written in a fantastic dream-language, forged from polyglot puns and portmanteau words, the Wake features some of Joyce's most hilarious characters: the Irish barkeep Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker, Shem the Penman, Shaun the Postman, and Anna Livia Plurabelle. This edition incorporates, in the text, corrections prepared by Joyce after publication of the first edition. "It will drug, excite, bedazzle or annoy you according to your taste and your capacity."-Washington D.C., News (Key Words: ).
