Editorial Reviews

Christopher Ricks
The cracked and crackling narrator of First Love who tells us how he met a woman on a bench, went back to live with her, and left her as she was giving birth to his child -- has all the pertinacity of that bone-deep fatigue which gives Beckett's decrepit figures (ruined leech-gatherers) their ruthless strength, their rigor, not mortis but of moribundity. -- New Statesman
