    Disappointment can be salutary. In the 1955 election Michael Foot surprisingly lost his seat. Until then he had been a journalist, albeit a prolific and influential one.

  • Samuel Beckettby Laura Salisbury

    Edinburgh University Press 2012; US$ 129.99

    Reads Beckett's comic timing as part of a post-war ethics of representation. Samuel Beckett is a funny writer.
