About this Recording

BECKETT, S.: Unnamable (The) (Unabridged)

The Unnamable is the third novel in Becket’s trilogy, three remarkable prose works in which men of increasingly debilitating physical circumstances act, ponder, consider and rage against impermanence and the human condition. The Unnamable is without doubt the most uncompromising text, and it is read here in startling fashion by Sean Barrett.
