One of Samuel Beckett’s early novellas, First Love contains much of his distinctive black humor and a plot that is regarded as a masterpiece of Beckettian perversity. A young man, expelled from the family home, takes refuge on a bench by a canal. There he meets a woman who takes him home, with comically disastrous consequences. Photo Credit: Ros Kavanagh
