Samuel Beckett

5 Feb

I just got around to reading an article about Samuel Beckett from an old issue (March 2012) of The New York Review. Beckett’s the author of the famous play Waiting for Godot..

Apparently Beckett wasn’t an immediate success. Here’s a quote from his publisher about an earlier work. “Seventeen copies sold, of which eleven at trade price to free circulating libraries beyond the seas.”

Also from Beckett himself:  “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

I’m inspired.
