James Joyce once said about Finnegan's Wake "It took me a lifetime to write it, it should take you a lifetime to read it."

Amazing amount of hubris, as if any of us should place Joyce's life above our own and spend our own life trying to understand his.

Quite a different sort of author by the time he was writing Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake from his earlier days when he was writing Dubliners.
