"The Theatrical Notebooks of Beckett that are reproduced in facsimile here offer a remarkable record of his own involvement with the staging of his texts. They present his solutions to practical problems of staging but also provide a unique insight into his way of envisaging his own plays."--BOOK JACKET.
