More Pricks Than Kicks: Beckett condensed by John Crace

A playful adaptation published in the Guardian
Samuel Beckett

'It was morning and Belacqua was stuck in the first canti of the moon. He was in stasis between Infernal allusion to Dante and a youthful homage to Joyce. The Master. "What would Stephen Daedalus do?" He asked himself.'
