Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. Samuel Beckett was one of the towering figures of twentieth-century literature; he was also famously reclusive. Here, in these intimate interviews conducted by his biographer, James Knowlson, Beckett and his family, friends and contemporaries reveal more of the human side of the writer than we have ever seen before. In the first part of the book Beckett talks about his family, his early youth, his friendship with James Joyce and his Resistance work in Paris during the war, when he was forced to flee from the Gestapo and live out the remaining war years in the Vaucluse region of Southern France. In the second part, some of Beckett s closest friends remember him as a schoolboy, as a struggling writer, and then as an international success in the 1950s with his novels and plays, including the world-famous Waiting For Godot. Among the contributors are actors he worked with, including Billie Whitelaw, Brenda Bruce and Jean Martin, and writers who felt the impact of his achievement, including Edward Albee, Paul Auster, J. M. Coetzee and Aiden Higgins. Beautifully designed and illustrated throughout, the book contains wonderful insights into Beckett s world. Seller Inventory # ABE9780747578826

Book Description Condition: New. Samuel Beckett, one of the towering figures of twentieth-century literature, was also famously reclusive. In these intimate interviews, Beckett and his family, friends and contemporaries reveal more of the writer's human side than ever before. Beckett himself talks of his early youth, his friendship with James Joyce and his Resistance work in Paris during the Second World War. Some of his closest friends remember him both as a schoolboy and struggling young writer, while his students at Trinity College, Dublin give their opinions of him as a lecturer. Actors, writers and directors, including Billie Whitelaw, Edward Albee and J M Coetzee, remember Beckett at the time of his international success. These humanising glimpses are a treat for the Beckett fan. The Knowlsons have assembled, in this scholarly but charming book, a mosaic of epiphanies while going some way to demystify the great Unknowable. INDEPENDENT. Seller Inventory # 1784
