His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead. A sentimental song performed at a Christmas party brings back the memory of a lost love in this extraordinary short story, widely regarded as one of the greatest ever written. The textured language of Joyce's richly-drawn Dubliners comes to life in this masterful reading, which also includes Ivy Day in the Committee Room. Download and start listening now!

    " Quite simply the best short story ever written. "

    " It was a bit too descriptive in some places, but the story itself was thoughtfully done. I love the character of Gabriel because he's such a clueless man. The poetic ending is beautifully done. "

    " Beautiful and depressing. The quintessential Joyce, in other words. "
