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.

Infinitely grateful.

Not only did these podcasts help me finish Ulysses but they made it both enlightening and enjoyable. No doubt I will return to them and the great book soon. ♾ Rest in peace Frank◼️

Ineluctable modality of the audible

I can't say I always enjoyed reading Ulysses but these podcasts are the audible equivalent of a page-turner. Addictive, informative and you have to admire the 25 year (ish) long premise.

A true delight

Frank Delaney is making the impossible - ie getting myself to read that Greek travel book. A true gem in every way.
