Summary
Paris, 1939. The pavement rumbles with the footfall of Nazi soldiers marching along the Champs-Elysees. A young, unknown writer, Samuel Beckett, recently arrived from Ireland to make his mark, smokes one last cigarette with his lover before the city they know is torn apart. Soon he will put them both in mortal danger by joining the Resistance. Through it all we are witness to the workings of a uniquely brilliant mind struggling to create a language that will express this shattered world. Here is a remarkable story of survival and determination, and a portrait of the extremes of human experience alchemized into one man's timeless art
