Nixon, a reader in modern literature at the University of Reading, which houses the most extensive collection of Beckett's papers, said he understood why the 13,500-word story failed to make the cut but thinks it will be of interest to more than just scholars.Nixon said he appreciated why Beckett's then-editor, Charles Prentice of publisher Chatto & Windus, had rejected it.Nixon said that although Beckett's stories generally could be strange, this one was a bit stranger, featuring as its main character a person who returns from the grave.Nixon said he knew of no other lost Beckett stories awaiting publication, but he said there was a plan afoot to publish a diary Beckett kept of a six-month trip he made through Nazi Germany in 1936 and 1937 .
