Willy Maley on Beckett – IR47 extract

An extract from Willy Maley’s article ‘Bend It Like Beckett’, from The Irish Review 47, out December 2013:

‘When Peasant Spice meets Posh Spice you get a fragrant vagrant with a penchant for putting on the poor mouth. Joyce and Beckett managed both to borrow the rags of the rabblement and do them down at the same time. Where I come from – Glasgow – this is called “the double dirty”, not just pulling the ladder up behind you, but pretending to be a workman at the same time.’
