Summary

‘Reading Beckett for the first time is an experience like no other in modern literature.’ – Paul Auster

The Faber Companion is the most comprehensive reference to the ideas, characters, and life of Samuel Beckett. Alphabetically ordered and cross-referenced, it provides a wealth of information for all serious readers of Beckett.

‘Ackerley and Gontarski have amassed an amazing amount of information about Samuel Beckett and his works. The Faber Companion will prove useful to everyone – from the neophyte who seeks other work by Beckett to the seasoned Beckett scholar who is not necessarily an expert on the writer’s use of astrology or zoology. In short, from A to Z, all readers of Beckett will be enriched.’ – Ruby Cohn
