This is the second in the famous trilogy of novels written by Samuel Beckett in the late 1940s. An old man is dying in a room. His bowl of soup comes, his pots are emptied. He waits to die. And while he waits, he constructs stories, mainly to pass the time. Saposcat, the Lambert family, Macmann and his nurse Moll. Other figures weave in and out of his vision and his imagination. This remarkable soliloquy, so intrinsically Beckettian, is as important as Waiting for Godot or Endgame, the famous plays that made his name. Sean Barrett gives a masterly performance.

Samuel Beckett was born in Dublin in 1906 and graduated from Trinity College. He settled in Paris in 1937, after travels in Germany and periods of residence in London and Dublin. He remained in France during the Second World War and was active in the French Resistance. From the spring of 1946 his plays, novels, short fiction, poetry and criticism were largely written in French. With the production of En attendant Godot in Paris in 1953, Beckett's work began to achieve widespread recognition. During his subsequent career as a playwright and novelist in both French and English he redefined the possibilities of prose fiction and writing for the theatre. Samuel Beckett won the Prix Formentor in 1961 and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1969. He died in Paris in December 1989.Review:
Novel by Samuel Beckett, originally written in French as Malone meurt (1951) and translated by the author into English. It is the second narrative in the trilogy that began with MOLLOY and concluded with THE UNNAMABLE. The novel's narrator, Malone, is dying. He spends his time writing an inventory of his meager possessions, a description of his condition, and stories about a character who is clearly an aspect of himself. Malone's struggles to tell his character's story can be viewed as a satire on the creative process as well as an attempt to understand the essence of the self. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
