4 editions published between 1963 and 1983 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Riverrun past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs ..." So starts Finnegans wake, the greatest challenge in twentieth-century literature. Who is Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker? And what did he get up to in Phoenix Park? And what did Anna Livia Plurabelle have to say about it? In the rich night time language of dreams here is history, anecdote, myth, folk tale -- and above all, a wondrous sense of humour coloured by a clear sense of humanity. In this exceptional reading by the Irish actor Jim Norton, with Marcella Riordan, the world of the Wake is more accessible than ever before. The abridgement, made by the composer and Joyce enthusiast Roger Marsh, is presented with the text, allowing the listener to get deeper into Joyce's labyrinth

Gargantua and Pantagruel by François Rabelais( Recording )

4 editions published in 1966 in 3 languages and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Most noble and illustrious drinkers.' Thus begins Gargantua and Panatgruel, a grotesque and carnivalesque collection of exuberant, fantastical stories that take us from the ancient world through to the European Renaissance. At the heart of these tall tales are the giant Gargantua and his equally seismic son Pantagruel. Magical adventures, maniacal punning, slapstick humor, erudite allusions and just about any bodily function one can think of, here is quite possibly the zaniest, most risque book ever written
