17 minutes, 2 seconds
Unabridged Short Story
Sometimes romance needs a bit of deliberation; this is Joyce at his most satiric.
“The Boarding House” is the seventh story in his collection Dubliners, classic tales dealing thematically with miscommunication, isolation, class differences, and emotional paralysis in Joyce’s Ireland.
Narrated by Alex Wilson.
