The Mooske and the Gripes is James Joyce’s peculiar and hilarious re-telling of Aesop’s ancient fable of `The Fox and the Grapes’, as presented in Finnegans Wake (1939).

A new book consists of forty-six colour illustrations by Irish artist Thomas McNally that run alongside Joyce’s text.

Each illustration is based on a line from the fable; taken together, they help to interpret and illuminate the work.

Almost eighty years on from the original publication, this illustrated edition of Joyce’s fable offers to readers a comedic, much needed entry-point into Finnegans Wake, and to its appreciation.
