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.
- Sat, June 16th, 4:30pm,
- Elliott Bay Bookstore, 101 S. Main St, Seattle, WA 98101.
- Sun, June 17th, 6pm,
- Pike Pub and Brewery, 1415 First Ave, Seattle, WA 98101.
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.
