Product description

Book Description

How It Is by Samuel Beckett - the first time this novel has been published by Faber, with a brand new introduction and edited by Edouard Magessa O'Reilly.

From the Back Cover

A sensitive reader who journey through How It Is will leave the book convinced that the author says more that is relevant to experience in our time than Shakespeare does in Macbeth. A wonderful book, written in the sparest of prose. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
