Three Novels

Three Novels Cover

 

Staff Pick

Here is the great masterpiece of prose by Irish legend and Nobel laureate Beckett. At times it is a disturbingly funny sojourn through the devastation of mortality. Other times it leaves you feverish and paranoid about the horrors of simplicity and the whimsy of life. Beckett was a genius whose attention to detail left nothing untouched. In this trilogy, three pure works of literature that cannot be separated from each other, he broke down the barriers of minimalist prose and built a giant monument to the human condition. Each time I read this collection of novels I am less and less sure of whether I should be laughing, crying, or even breathing.

Publisher Comments:

Few works of contemporary literature are so universally acclaimed as central to our understanding of the human experience as Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett's famous trilogy, consisting of Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable.

Review:

"Beckett is one of the most positive writers alive. Behind all his mournful blasphemies against man there is real love. And he is genuine: every sentence is written as if it had been lived." New York Times Book Review
