First edition, published by Calder Boyars, 1967

This book gathers three of Beckett’s early short stories; The Expelled, The Calmative and The End, all written in 1946, with his thirteen Texts for Nothing, From an abandoned work and Residua. The first three short stories deal with the narrators’ gradual decent in to vagrancy, old men expelled, in search of a new place or existence. Texts for Nothing, all untitled pieces, are made up of a variety of voices in search of a core ‘truth’.
