Just started reading Finnegan's Wake.
Irishfag here, I'm surprised by how much of this is written based on how Irish people (or more specifically Dubliners) speak [which is not the way americans seem to think we speak in movies], and how many Irish-specific references there are.
It's logical given that Joyce was Irish, but I figured since it's so popular internationally it wouldn't be too Irish-specific.
There must be a fair chunk of the book going completely over non-irish people's heads, it's weird.
