Novels II of Samuel Beckett: Volume II of The Grove Centenary Editions, By Samuel Beckett, Paul Auster (Editor), Salman Rushdie (Introduction)
This four–volume set of Beckett's canon has been designed by award-winner Laura Lindgren. The four hardcover volumes have been specially bound with covers featuring images central to Beckett's works. Typographical errors that remained uncorrected in the various prior editions have now been corrected in consultation with Beckett scholars C. J. Ackerley and S. E. Gontarski.
Includes Molloy, Malone Dies, The Unnamable, and How It Is. An excellent choice for any Beckett fan.
"A man speaking English beautifully chooses to speak in French, which he speaks with greater difficulty, so that he is obliged to choose his words carefully, forced to give up fluency and to find the hard words that come with difficulty, and then after all that finding he puts it all back into English, a new English containing all the difficulty of the French, of the coining of thought in a second language, a new English with the power to change English forever. This is Samuel Beckett. This is his great work. It is the thing that speaks. Surrender." — Salman Rushdie, from his Introduction
