the Wake

I've deduced that if I read five and one quarter pages of Finnegans Wake every night I can get through it in four months. Who's with me?

Also, thinking ahead to next year: which should I pick, the Russians or Proust?

I read Dr. Zhivago a decade ago and didn't understand the ending, but there's a lot of good, and Anna K. could be especially interesting. Then again, Proust is so… Proustian, and maybe I could pick up a little more French along the way.

I want Finnegans Wake in hardcover — if you search the wish lists for Motormouth, you'll find me. I figure I've kept my online journalings ad-free for thirteen years, the least you could do is buy me a book, dontcha think?

  1. Sorry, I'd rather endure Chinese water torture while listening to Fran Drescher read The Waste Land in Pig Latin than read The Wake
