Alba Arikha writes a piece on tracing personal relations with Samuel Beckett for The TLS

‘I began taking notes for the book I had been struggling to write for some time. It was mainly about my adolescence in Paris, growing up with artistic parents: the painter Avigdor Arikha and the poet Anne Atik, who had both emigrated to Paris in the 1950s – my mother from the US, my father from Israel via Bukovina, a German speaking part of Romania. I described their high-minded friends, my father’s low tolerance of pop culture, my mother who strove to make herself heard – not always successfully.’
