More Pricks Than Kicks

Dublin Core

Title

More Pricks Than Kicks

Subject

Beckett, Samuel, 1906-1989. More Pricks Than Kicks.

Description

Scarce first edition of this collection of ten short stories. Beckett had mixed feelings about its publication: excitement over his first book of fiction being published, but also fear that his friends and relatives would recognize themselves in it and be offended. The publisher, Chatto and Windus, failed to find an American press to partner with, and the book was met with mixed reviews and low sales.
