Echoes abound with 'Molloy', the first of the trilogy. Malone is another Molloy in many respects. Kindred. They're both stuck at journey's end making pitiful inventories, following, endlessly, tortuous mental paths twisted up like spaghetti in heaps. They both made it through a forest, murdered when they had to, or chose; lie alone in their rooms profoundly aged and dying.
Beckett handles it all so expertly, coolly, comically. However absurd and convoluted and inane, you have to yet conclude that, yes, this is really how it is.
"A Wet Night" was a bit hard for me to read, since english is not my first language, Beckett used a lot of words i've never heard before, and i read quite a lot of English language books. The preface tells a lot of background, and Beckett first was against re-releasing it, and i can agree. As i said, this is the first book i've read of Beckett, but i can see that his language is unique, and i am sure it will develop further in his later books, i will read his other works.
The first story, "Dante and the Lobster" was also the best one, some of the other storys seem confusing to me.
As for the quality of the printing: It's what to expect in a paperback copy, a bit better than that actually, as it "says in shape" after i've read it. Sturdy copy.
