Literature: Samuel Beckett

The Irish Independent reviews a book of Samuel Beckett's letters.
One of his correspondents was his Dublin friend Mary Manning whom he kept informed as to the progress of his tour, the latest rejections of his novel 'Murphy' and the inexorable development of a boil he had "between wind and water".

That's the classiest term for the taint that I've ever heard!
