Abstract:

A novel consisting of two meandering, plotless, stream-of-consciousness monologues, one by Molloy, a bedridden vagrant obsessed with finding his mother, and the other by Moran, a private detective who is assigned to find Molloy. Some view the work as a modernistic and experimental excursion into meaninglessness. Both the characters have a similar appearance, similar attitudes, and seem to be seriously mentally disturbed. Some critics argue both are the same person.
