I have read James Knowlson's most excellent biography of Sam so I was unsure if this would simply be extracts from that great book. Great news its is not a regurgitation but an expansion and additions from different sources, further broadening our knowledge. There can never be too much material about this most unique of writers.
For as much wonderful material as this book contained, it's too bad it wasn't arranged better. For those interested in Beckett, I'd recommend Knowlson's earlier 800-page brick, Damned to Fame, which is less sentimental, better organized, and more erudite.
Because the bulk of the book is comprised ofl interviews of Sam Beckett, his friends, family and colleagues, I found entry into an intimate, wonderful new world of Beckett's life and his brilliant work.
