"Echo's Bones was intended by Samuel Beckett to form the "recessional" or end-piece of his early collection of interrelated stories, 'More Pricks than Kicks', published in 1934. The story was written at the request of the publisher, but was held back from inclusion in the published volume. It has remained unpublished to this day, and the present edition will situate the work in terms of its biographical context, its Joycean influences, and as a vital link in the evolution of Beckett's early work. The editor, Mark Nixon, is director of the Beckett International Foundation at the University of Reading."--Publisher.

Samuel Beckett may be a excellent and famous playwright- who hasn't read Waiting For Godot?- but this is impenetrable. The introduction does warn of that , however I proceeded to make my own mind up, and the intro was correct. Better things to do with my time.

A very-almost actual account- of the afterlife, written with great finesse!
