Audiobook

Three BBC radio productions of major works by James Joyce – plus Gordon Bowker's fascinating biographical account of his life

Ulysses
In this full-cast dramatisation of Joyce's epic modernist novel, the stories of Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom combine as they meander through Dublin in the course of one day, 16 June 1904.
