A Skeleton Key to Finnegan’s Wake (yes, that Joseph
Campbell)

Finnegan’s Wake is a puzzle I am still trying to solve. Seems like
it’s a lifetime’s work.

Interesting note: (maybe a spoiler? – but not really)

the last line – A way a lone a last a loved a long the

completes the first line – 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
.

That was the first thing I noticed when I opened the book and I have been
hooked ever since.

Finnegan’s Wake is neck-and-neck with Gravity’s Rainbow as
my “desert island”
book.
