Finnegans Wake is the weirdest book by the Irish author James Joyce and known as the most unreadable one. Nicolas Mahler is using some of the more comprehensible phrases in the book and makes it accessible for everyone. (Perorhaps!)
Mahler has rendered a thick-lined and intentionally slapdash version of a part of the novel that’s filtered through the lens of Mutt & Jeff but looks and reads decidedly more like Krazy Kat. I’m tempted to call that genius, even if it’s just, at the end of the day, a fairly basic conceit played for all its worth and then some — and in that respect, it’s unquestionably a fitting heir to Joyce. It also means this mini transcends irony by being entirely and overtly apropos.
