Mercier and Camier


Appearing immediately before his celebrated "trilogy" of Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable, Mercier and Camier was Beckett's first attempt at extended prose fiction in French. Beckett refused to publish it in its original French until 1970, and while an English translation by Beckett himself was published in 1974. Remainder mark on bottom page end, but otherwise pages are clean. Light fading to edges. Dust jacket is a little rubbed. 5.5"x8" with 123 pages. First American Edition.
