Finnegans Wake in Santa Cruz

This blog is a bit of an experiment. I've been meeting for the better part of a year with a small group of friends who are attempting to read James Joyce's Finnegans Wake together a couple of times a month. We're just over the 100 page mark.

Tonight, a question came up. We wondered how many people in the world were actually reading Finnegans Wake right now. A few hundred? A million? We really don't know. Nor can we. However, if you are reading the Wake right now, we'd like to hear from you. Our numbers are a bit thin--I almost wrote "fin"--on the ground, so even virtual fellow readers will be appreciated.


  1. hi,

    i just stumbled upon this blog doing a google search for "the mookse and the gripes." it probably goes without saying that i'm reading Finnegans Wake right now. i'm 135 pages in and live in Philadelphia, PA. i'll be following this regularly now, thanks!

  3. Hi James. Your post got lost in some weird Google moderation folder for a few days, but don't take that as any kind of cold shoulder. Thanks for commenting here, and feel free to post comments any time!
