Samuel Beckett story set to be published 80-years after rejection

London, March 30: Nobel laureate Samuel Beckett’ s story ‘Echo’s Bones’ will be finally published 80-years after it was rejected as a “nightmare read”.

The author of ‘Waiting for Godot’ was told by the publisher that the book gave him “the jim-jams” and the book would lose a great many readers, as people will shudder and be puzzled and confused and won’t be interested in analyzing the shudder, the Guardian reported.

The 13,500-word story was held back from inclusion in the published volume and has since remained hidden in American archives, receiving scant attention from Beckett scholars, but will now be published by Faber and Faber on 17 April. (ANI)
