Refreshing and enlightening. I closed the book eager to go back to the

19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By R. Moyano on 25 May 2007
Format: Paperback
I bought this book at Dublin airport out of curiosity. I read "Beckett remembering, remembering Beckett" in less than two weeks - English is not my mother tongue. What is fascinating about the book is both Beckett's own life and Knowlson writing style: clear, uncomplicated and rich in detail. Knowlson writing style has this particular effect on the reader: it simply makes you want to devour the book. I bought "Damned to Fame" from Amazon (incredibly cheaper compared to high street prices) straight after. "Damned to Fame" is a treasure. Knowlson knew Beckett for 19 years and he is the only person who Beckett authorised to write his biography. It goes into so much detail and yet it keeps the uncomplicated style despite the scholastic nature of the author.

I strongly recommend both books to anyone feeling slightly curious about Beckett. You won't be dissapointed. Beckett was a fascinating human being, very unique and inspirational. And his singular work a priceless contribution to the twentieth century literature. Both books are a great insight into his time, work and life. A true pleasure for literature lovers in a time of cheap best-sellers.
