English Heritage

From English Heritage: Beckett lived here "for seven months in 1934 while undergoing psychoanalysis (paid for by his mother following the death of his father) and seeking literary work. During this time he was writing his first novel, Murphy, and it was while living on Paultons Square that his first full-length work, the short story collection More Pricks than Kicks, was published." and "he lived in London on-and-off for three years in the mid-1930s".
