This book is not the play Waiting for Godot, but an artist book about the play, containing a critic’s appreciation, fifty three-color prints, a synopsis, and commentary.

Selected Artwork

William T. Wiley is an apologetic visual and verbal punster. Characters are represented as hourglass figures. At the bottom of the hourglass is an ampersand (&). The sign for “and” stands for the “sand” running through the hourglass. Time, as an hourglass sunk in a sandbox, is an “embedded reporter”. The hangman’s noose that dangles from a branch becomes a serpent entwining the tree.

Each copy is accompanied by the bilingual hardcover trade edition of Waiting for Godot, published by Grove Press.
