Condition: Very Good

London, U. K: Faber & Faber, 1930. 1st Edition. Original Wraps. Very Good. 32 pp., nut brown cartonage dust-cover with red titling on front board. One of Joyce's most opaque offerings; who was the mysterious Anna? Was she the River Liffey or Joyce's troubled daughter Lucia? Quercus does not offer an opinion, but here is her first book, that would later burst upon the world as "Finnegan's Wake." Whoever she was in Joyce's mind, she became the heroine of what has been called "the most impenetrable novel of the Twentieth Century." (dust-cover has tiny chips along edges and corners, clean without any markings) In a custom made high gauge mylar DJ and glassine envelope.Please contact us directly for a full description. Photo scan available upon request.

Finnegans Wake is a work of comic fiction by Irish author James Joyce, significant for an experimental style and its resulting reputation as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. Written in Paris over a period of 17 years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work.
