The Cosmic Library

Adam Colman

The Cosmic Library explores massive books in order to explore everything else. Here, books that can seem overwhelming—books of dreams, infinity, mysteries—turn out to be intensely accessible, offering so many different ways to read them and think with them. Season one considered Finnegans Wake; in season two, it was 1,001 Nights. Season three journeyed through and beyond the Hebrew Bible. In season four, we read Journey to the West.

  • Is a podcast about Finnegan’s Wake listenable?

    A joyous yes! As a reader, I’ve always stood timorously before the literary Everest that is Finnegan’s Wake. Unsure whether my past reading experiences had sufficiently prepared me, I could neither begin the ascent nor put aside the desire to make the climb. After listening to the first episode of F&F, I finally feel up to the challenge. My newly found confidence stems from the fact that the deeply-skilled host Adam Colman will be the one leading the Everest expedition. Onwards, ever onwards!
