Malone Dies is the first person monologue of Malone, an old man lying in bed and waiting to die. The tone is fiercely ironic, highly quotable, and because of its extravagance, also very comic. It catches the reality of old age in a way that is grimly convincing, cruel as humor so often is, and memorable because of Beckett's way with words. A master dramatist, Beckett's novels can be even more effective when heard, and especially when read by such a Beckett specialist as Sean Barrett.

    " Guy may have been a genius, but his novels blow. What's the deal with the endless paragraphs? "

    " I can't say I really enjoyed reading this, mostly because a lot of it went totally over my head. However, I still really liked some parts and I'm sure it will be more enjoyable on a second reading. "

    " Like Molloy, this is sometimes hard going. But it has a lot of moments of grim hilarity, and the absolute greatest, most vulgar and anti-romantic "love letter" that I've ever read "
