Personal Quote:

Some people think of Beckett as a very negative writer. I think he's a positive writer. The last three words of [his novel] The Unnameable are: "I'll go on" - "You must go on; I can't go on; I'll go on." See more »

Trivia:

Has performed in two one-man touring Beckett shows entitled "I'll Go On" (1985) and "Watt" (2010). See more »
