Beckett biographer James Knowlson
-  Listen here

Long before his death in 1989, the myths surrounding Samuel Beckett had begun to circulate. For some, he was judged to have been an unfriendly recluse; for others he was the greatest intellectual genius of the twentieth century. But one thing is known - by the time he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969, his name and work was celebrated throughout the world.

To celebrate the centenary of his birth, his biographer James Knowlson has compiled a collection of reminiscences, from Beckett himself and from people who knew him, which reveal the human side of this notoriously private author.
