The Sisters

Book at Bedtime, Dubliners Episode 1 of 20

Naturalistic in style, 'Dubliners' depicts an array of characters, graduating progressively from childhood, through adolescence, to maturity, culminating in the final story, 'The Dead'. The stories each centre on the idea of a moment of epiphany, but are grounded in the minutiae of daily life. Stories of love, loss, con men, friendship, alcoholism, marriage, politics and family, combine to create a unified world, a celebration of a city, in the unparalleled prose of its most famous son.
