HAPPY DAYS: SAMUEL BECKETT'S PRODUCTION NOTEBOOK edited by James Knowlson
Grove Press, 1985 First edition, 206 pp., 5 3/4" X 8 3/4" Hardcover
As was his practice with all of his own plays which he has directed since the mid sixties, he recorded his activity as a director in the pages of a personal notebook which he prepared meticulously for the production. This was the first of Beckett's production notebooks to be published. It contains a facsimile of Beckett's manuscript production notes with facing transcriptions, followed by extensive editorial notes by Professor James Knowlson of Reading University.
