This is the last of three volumes of shorter prose to be collected in the Faber edition of the works of Samuel Beckett - which already includes the early stories (The Expelled/The Calmative/The End/First Love) and late stories (Company/Ill Seen Ill Said/Worstward Ho/Stirrings Still). The present edition contains all of the shorter fictions - some of them no longer than a page - written and published by Beckett between 1950 and the mid-1970s. Most were written in French, and include two sequences: Texts for Nothing and Fizzles. The edition also includes two remarkable independent narratives: From an Abandoned Work and As The Story Was Told. All of these works demonstrate that the short story is one of the recurrent modes of Beckett’s imagination, and occasioned some of his greatest writing.
