Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The editorial practices are superb."
--Choice
Michael Dirda
…few writers have been better served by their editors than Samuel Beckett. This sumptuous volume, The Letters of Samuel Beckett: Volume 2, 1941-1956, like its predecessor and the two that will follow, is beautifully designed and laid out, while the editorial apparatus includes lavishly detailed notes, yearly chronologies, an extensive biographical appendix and more than 90 pages of introductory matter, highlighted by a brilliant summary essay by editor Dan Gunn. The letters in French—at least half of them—are followed by English translations. Anyone who admires Beckett will want to read and own this book.
—The Washington Post
