Abstract

A short story entitled "F—" was published in the January 15, 1949 issue of the Anglophone, Paris-based review transition. The author is listed as Suzanne Dumesnil (later Mme. Samuel Beckett), but no translator is named. Beckett told his bibliographers Federman and Fletcher that he was "certain" of having translated it. The University of Texas Beckettiana catalogue describes it as: "A short story by Beckett's wife, written at the time Beckett was writing En attendant Godot. The translation is unsigned." (74). Several Beckett scholars suspect that Beckett wrote the story, since it resembles his short fiction of the 1940s in its repetition, fragmentation, interrogation, self-address, and in the immediacy of its rendition of experience.
