Occasionally, a book comes a long that in much better as an audiobook. This is one of them. Nora is the common law wife of James Joyce. Told in her voice, the narrator, Jenn McGuirk, can change voices for different characters and portrays Nora Joseph Barnacle’s love for Joyce even as he drinks, writes and gambles his way to literary stardom. Nora’s life was hard. She was the one picking up the pieces. Both the writing and the narration give testament to the full range of Nora’s emotions. She deserves a lot more credit for keeping Joyce moving forward as she struggled to take care of their family.
