British PM Candidate Nick Clegg's Hero? Samuel Beckett

By Harriet Staff

From the Guardian:

"Every time I go back to Beckett he seems more subversive, not less; his works make me feel more uncomfortable than they did before. The unsettling idea, most explicit in Godot, that life is habit – that it is all just a series of motions devoid of meaning – never gets any easier."
