In Their Own Words



Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

No, this is not a James Joyce site. However, I recently came across a great audio page with JJ reading many of his own most famous works. This reminded me of a recent loss. I had constructed an extensive page of audio links to famous writers reading their own work, but unfortunately this crashed with my Homestead account. I have decided to put up some of the more interesting links here--though the Blog page can in no way compare with the original--and now sadly defunct--page.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy browsing the links. (Sorry, but you'll need to copy and paste).

In riferimento al commento sul post Tango del mio blog, vorrei consigliarti la visione di "Tango" (Cine Argentino) - Carlos Saura (1998).
