'In the third volume of this landmark project, the editors offer an expertly assembled selection of Beckett's letters written between 1957 and 1965.' Publishers Weekly
'Superb … as with earlier volumes the editorial work on display here is of a very high order.' Standpoint
'Readers get an extraordinary insight into the mind of arguably this country's best playwright.' Irish Tatler
'The third volume is as impeccably and as lovingly edited as its predecessors … As always, George Craig's translation of the letters in French is clear, elegant and always inventive - particularly felicitous, for instance, is his rendering of the French slang term mézigue as 'My Nibs'. Beckett would have loved it.' Irish Times
'The volume like its earlier companions is a work of meticulous scholarship and has to be counted a major achievement by Cambridge University Press.' Emer O'Kelly, Irish Independent
'Among all the tawdry showbiz memoirs now crowding the shops, here is greatness, words to take to heart, the book of the year.' David Sexton, Evening Standard
'A beautifully wrought publication and thanks to its four editors it has an artistry all of its own.' Sean Doran, The Independent
This edition makes available for the first time a comprehensive range of letters by one of the twentieth century's greatest literary figures. This volume (1957–1965) shows Beckett reacting to, and building on, the success of Waiting for Godot with new work for the theatre, for radio and television.
