No playwright has captured the human predicament in the 20th century with the wit and insight of Samuel Beckett. This succinct, thorough and accessible introduction to the man, his work and his ideas surveys the plays, novels and poems, draws on interviews with theatrical colleagues such as Peter Hall and Peggy Ashcroft – and the author himself, who first met Beckett in 1961 – and includes a chronology and annotated bibliography.
