Radio 4 to dramatise Ulysses

This is something to look forward to.

BBC Radio 4 are devoting a substantial part of June 16th to Ulysses, by James Joyce. This is a book that I’ve never read: it’s been on my ‘list of books to read one day’ for many years, decades even, but it’s never quite reached the top.

There are many classics that I should read. Listening to an audio version on the radio will give me a good flavour of the novel, of course, but as with films, they’ll probably leave a lot out.

But the thing is, if it increases my level of interest, I am more likely to pick up the book one day.
