You would do better, at least no worse, to obliterate texts

Beckett Bookstore
Amazon.com claims to be the largest bookstore in the world; and indeed browsing their awesome inventory lends support to this claim. As an Amazon.com Associate, we have provided this section to help organize their over 500 Beckett and Beckett-related titles. Broken down into three sections, each features the most common US editions of works by or about Beckett. More refined searches can be made using search engines at the bottom of each page. Clicking on a book will take you out of the Libyrinth and to Amazon.com, where you may read a brief description of that work -- there is no obligation to buy. You may either return to Apmonia or shop around at Amazon.com.
Most of the books available are discounted through Amazon.com, and we must confess that we get paid a small fee for every book ordered -- little tips that help keep Apmonia in operation. For some of the titles we have inlcuded small descriptions; however, if these are in "quotes" we are merely extracting from the publisher's blurb.
On this page we feature new and forthcoming books; but most of the collection has been filed according to three main categories:

Catalog of works by Samuel Beckett -- Poems, novels, dramas, and collections.

Catalog of works about Beckett -- Biographies, criticisms, annotations, and guides.

Multimedia -- Books on tape, spoken word, and films.
