Rotten Reviews: How It Is, by Samuel Beckett

“…he breeds nothing but confusion. His plays and novels present a vision of life that is shockingly unchristian. They make the life and death of our Lord just one more of the legends man has used to delude himself…Beckett is postulating this as our inescapable condition of life. It may be for him. Not for this reader.”

R.H. Glauber, Christian Century
