Malone Dies by Samuel Beckett

Malone Dies

by Samuel Beckett

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
5 Hrs. 38 Min.


Malone Dies is the first person monologue of Malone, an old man lying in bed and waiting to die. The tone is fiercely ironic, highly quotable, and because of its extravagance, also very comic. It catches the reality of old age in a way that is grimly convincing, cruel as humor so often is, and memorable because of Beckett's way with words. A master dramatist, Beckett's novels can be even more effective when heard, and especially when read by such a Beckett specialist as Sean Barrett.

Malone Dies was written as a separate novel, but is often regarded as the second part of The Beckett Trilogy, preceded by Molloy and followed by The Unnamable
