I really enjoyed this imaging (based on her research) of Beckett's time during the Second World War. If you are a Beckett or Joyce fan, you will appreciate it, and even if you know nothing of them, the rigors of everyday life in France at the time is well told.

I really enjoyed Baker's imagining of Beckett's life in France during WW II. The author illuminates the genesis of Beckett's later works.

4/5 stars. This book was a wonderfully descriptive book about Samuel Beckett and his time in France during World War II and its aftermath.
