The World of Samuel Beckett

The Samuel Beckett of this fine biographical portrait is an inspiring artist. The author, Lois Gordon, focuses on the world from 1906 to 1946 in which Beckett matured and became the great writer that we know. Through her fascinating depiction of his maturation during these years, including his involvement with the Red Cross and French Resistance, we learn about the life that helped make the man.
