James Joyce reading From 'Finnegan's Wake'

This Recording was made in 1929 in Cambridge, England. The recording was arranged by Joyce's friend Sylvia Beach who wrote in her own memoirs  “How beautiful the ‘Anna Livia’ recording is,and how amusing Joyce’s rendering of an Irish washerwoman’s brogue!”

Joyce reads the “Anna Livia Plurabelle” chapter of his then work in progress, which would not  be published until ten years later as Finnegans Wake.
