Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970224133, Hardcover)

17 Improvisations is the fruit of a seven-year effort by writer/illustrator Tim Ahern: improvised narratives, each related to a different chapter of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. They can be used as an inventive guide to Joyce's original novel (as has been done by the Thirsty Scholars of Boston and the DC Wake reading group), or read for their own pleasure, stocked as they are with fresh and illuminating references to the fascinating historical and literary details woven into the Wake. "Something most remarkable, rich in Joycean references and as complex and creative as the Wake itself." -W.C. Cliett "Truly a work of genius!...Ahern has created a kind of parallel universe, clearly aligned with Joyce's work, that offers fresh perspective and new insight." -Mary Flannery, D.C. Wake reading group founder
