Finnegans Wake Penguin 1982

About the
Finnegans Wake Society of New York
and the
Wake Watchers

We meet montly in a private apartment (now that our former home, the famous Gotham Book Mart in New York City, has closed). At meetings we read short sections of the text aloud and then discuss them.

We're open to anyone interested in reading and discussing this last opaque work of James Joyce. Having read the Wake or any such prior experience is not necessary. Although some participants have studied the Wake intensively, first-time readers can jump right in, and often are the source of fresh ideas.

As the Wake is a circular tale, it doesn't ot matter where we are when you join the group. There is no membership, nor any dues; a voluntary contribution of $2 may be made at meetings.
