Written in Roussillon during World War II, while Samuel Beckett was hiding from the Gestapo, Watt was first published in 1953. Beckett acknowledged that this comic novel unlike any other ‘has its place in the series’ - those masterpieces running from Murphy to the Trilogy, Waiting for Godot and beyond.
