Earth.

From the Publisher:

This is part of a series of twelve short volumes brought out
ten years after the great writer's death, containing the best of the
shorter writing, ranging from early work to his final writings. All have
covers with the photographs of Samuel Beckett taken by the Irish
photographer John Minihan, which, catching the author in different moods,
have become classics on their own.

About the Author:

Samuel Beckett was born in a suburb of Dublin in 1906 and died
in Paris in 1989. After school in Northern Ireland he went to Trinity
College in Dublin where he distinguished himself in French and Italian and
was recognised as a brilliant scholar, who under an exchange arrangement
taught at the Ecole Normale Supérieure before becoming a writer. He left
Ireland and finally settled in Paris, staying in France during the war
where he was a courier in the Résistance. He won the Nobel Prize in 1969
and is now recognised as one of the major writers of the 20th century.
