The Voice of Shem
Mary Manning's dramatisation of selected passages from Finnegans Wake
First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 22.5 × 14cm, xiii + 75pp.
A dramatisation of parts of Joyce's Finnegans Wake. From the wrapper, "The selections Mary Manning has made from the text of the great novel have been carefully arranged so that the voice of Shem (Joyce himself) is heard throughout expressing his deep nostalgia, his pride, his exile, his contempt, his love and hate, his wit, and above all, his poetry".
The book is in very good condition, with some browning to the endpapers. The dustwrapper has surface wear and is a little rubbed but has not been price-clipped.
