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.

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.

- Susan "The problem is that I have read too much and can't find new literary books. Writers today fill with too much stuffing, too little meat."

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?
