Finnegans Wake Penguin 1982

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

We meet monthly in a private apartment (now that our former home, the famous Gotham Book Mart is 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 long and complex work of Joyce. It isn't necessary to have read the Wake or have any such prior experience: although some participants know the work well, 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.
