Publisher's Summary

Malone Dies is the first person monologue of Malone, an old man lying in bed and waiting to die. The tone is fiercely ironic, highly quotable, and because of its extravagance, also very comic. It catches the reality of old age in a way that is grimly convincing, cruel as humor so often is, and memorable because of Beckett's way with words. A master dramatist, Beckett's novels can be even more effective when heard, and especially when read by such a Beckett specialist as Sean Barrett.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Malone Dies was written as a separate novel, but is often regarded as the second part of The Beckett Trilogy, preceded by Molloy and followed by The Unnamable

    "Living Beckett"

    Hearing these books ( i read them several years ago) brought them to life and gave them a whole other dimension. Personally i think they are marvelous, full of humor and philosophy. I wish Audible had more Beckett- MORE, MORE please.

    "I could not wait until he died."

    This novel was boring. I kept waiting for something to happen. I found myself wishing that he would die already. Pretty sad, huh?
