In 1963, renowned Franco-American author Raymond Federman - then a young academic, just fresh from defending his PhD - met Samuel Beckett in Paris. The meeting was to change his life. 'Sam' became both a great friend and a great source of inspiration to Federman throughout his writing career. Intensely moving and intensely funny by turns, this unique book is both a memoir of a friendship, and a typically Federman-esque tribute to Beckett and his work. The Sam Book brings together memories, anecdotes, extracts from articles and talks, and other pieces of writing that derive their inspiration directly from Beckett's work.
