'These four stories were written in French by Mr Beckett shortly after the war and translated by him into english in the fifties and seventies, two of them in collaboration with Richard Seaver. They are a bridge between the early novels written in English and the Molloy trilogy, rich in verbal and situational humour, and the preoccupations which are fairly constant throughout the work of a writer who has not only transformed the art of the novel and the contemporary theatre, but given to both academics and the general reader a corpus of work of inexhaustible interest.'
