There are many points of contact between Deleuze’s spatial concepts, in their variegated forms, and the prose work of Samuel Beckett. With particular emphasis on the concept of any-space-whatever, it is shown that Beckett’s interrogation of spatiality in the work immediately following the Second World War can be seen to anticipate the very qualities of his late work which would lead Deleuze to make such extensive use of the concept in ‘The Exhausted’. For the purposes of this chapter Beckett’s novella ‘The Expelled’ is explored. In addition to the direct links between the any-space-whatever and Beckett in ‘The Exhausted’, reference is made to the two distinct but related formulations of the concept in the Cinema books.
