How It Is

Beckett's 1961 novel is called Comment c'est ('how it is'), a pun on the French verb commencer or 'to begin'. Has anybody tried coming up with a title that preserves, or at least gestures towards that doubling of meaning? Hard to do. My best shot is probably: Like This -- except that 'liking things' is far from the tenor of the text.

It's So/Let's Go.


Come, hence


How it goes

Two: begin
