In 2009, Cambridge University Press began the monumental project of publishing the selected correspondence of Samuel Beckett. With the fourth volume, published this year, the project reaches completion.
Two of the series’ editors, Dan Gunn of the American University of Paris and George Craig of the University of Sussex, will be at the shop to talk about the life and letters of this most controversially beloved of 20th-century authors.
‘If Godot and Molloy lit up the dreary landscape of writing in the immediate post-war era’ wrote Gabriel Josipovici in the TLS in 2009, ‘these letters are set to do the same for the new century.’
