Whilst he ate, he read a morning paper propped up in front of him. Eugene Cake, author of such improving fiction as Gnashers of Teeth; and other memorable personalities.

NC Samuel Beckett : Molloy Molloy is a vagrant come home to die, sitting in his mother's room, recounting his life's adventurings in a rambling, stream-of-consciousness narrative that occupies a single paragraph stretching over almost 90 pages.
