Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0807614106, Paperback)

In a remarkable piece of photojournalism, John Minihan documents the private world of playwright-novelist Samuel Beckett (1906-1989), best known as the author of Waiting for Godot. The expatriate Dubliner is seen directing stage productions of his work, relaxing in a hotel room, chatting with friends in a London pub, and walking the streets of his adopted home, Paris. While the photographer's preface could have been more revealing, his pictures capture--and humanize--that most enigmatic of literary figures. The book provides an ideal complement to James Knowlson's recent biography of Beckett, Damned to Fame.
