Murphy

Samuel Beckett

From Shelf: The 100 best novels written in English: the full list (Robert McCrum, The Guardian Dec 2021)

Murphy's friends and familiars are simulacra of Murphy, fragmented and incomplete. The combination of particularity and absurdity gives Murphy's world its painful definition, but the sheer comic energy of Beckett's prose releases characters and readers alike into exuberance.
