Description
Originally written in French in 1946 but not published until 1970 (and not translated into English until 1974), this brief, grimly comic novel follows Mercier and his friend Camier as they alternately meet and miss each other by chance. They pay visits to a bawdy house called Helen's Place and repeatedly attempt to leave their Dublinesque city, only to abandon the plan each time. The protagonist of Samuel Beckett's earlier novel Watt makes an enigmatic cameo appearance. One of the great writers of the 20th century, Beckett won the Nobel Prize in 1969. He is remembered primarily as a novelist and playwright, producing Waiting for Godot and the trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnameable, though he was also a poet and, when he chose to be, a discerning critic of great originality. Beckett continues to exert a powerful influence on other writers and interest in his work has grown since his death in 1989.
