A listener on my YouTube channel (subscribe, dammit!) suggested that I do all of the stories in James Joyce’s DUBLINERS. I had already done ARABY, so one down. I thought about doing THE DEAD, but that’s a novella, basically, and so that one will have to wait. I decided to do AFTER THE RACE because it’s one of the shortest stories in the collection, basically, and I wanted to get a feel for whether or not Joyce’s writing style in the collection would be a good fit for my performance style. After doing ATR, I think it is, and so I’ll probably do more of them soon. Unless ATR bombs, of course, and then I’ll look for other stories to do!

Here’s “After the Race” by James Joyce:


You would probably love reading my book because you love literary fiction.
