Bloomsday 2007

Bloomsday 2007

I made my radio debut this afternoon. The Wild Geese Players of Seattle read a couple of short excerpts on KBCS from James Joyce’s Ulysses, as a foretaste of the readings we’re doing next weekend.

This year’s reading is of the Nausicaa chapter, wherein Leopold Bloom reposes on a beach to recover from clashing with the Citizen in the previous chapter, and flirts at a distance with young Gerty MacDowell. This is the infamous mas­tur­ba­tion chapter that led to Ulysses being banned for obscenity.

There are two readings.

I will be one of several readers giving voice to Leopold Bloom. It is likely that Jim McDermott will once again be reading with us.
