A collection that includes some of Camus' most brilliant political writing

About the Author

Albert Camus (1913-1960) grew up in a working-class neighbourhood in Algiers. He studied philosophy at the University of Algiers, and became a journalist. His most important works include The Outsider, The Myth of Sisyphus, The Plague and The Fall. After the occupation of France by the Germans in 1941, Camus became one of the intellectual leaders of the Resistance movement. He was killed in a road accident, and his last unfinished novel, The First Man, appeared posthumously.Justin O'Brien was the Blanche W. Knopf Professor of French Literature at Columbia University and renowed translator of Andre Gide and Albert Camus, both of whom were his intimate friends.

Reviews

Probably no European writer of his time left so deep a mark on the imagination -- Conor Cruise O'Brien
Camus helps you become "the one you are". And the revolt he incites, an assertion of individual freedom, brings you into a recognition of common human suffering and of the common need to lessen it and to enliven the lives of all -- David Constantine
