UNNAMABLE, THE

Synopsis

The Unnamable - so named because he knows not who he may be - is from a nameless place. He speaks of previous selves ('all these Murphys, Molloys, and Malones...') as diversions from the need to stop speaking altogether. But, as with the other novels in the Beckett trilogy, the prose is full of marvellous precisions, full of its own reasons for keeping going.
