About the Author

Peter Dunwoodie is Reader in European Languages at Goldsmiths College, University of London.


`Dunwoodie engages his subject without resort to the jargon of literary theory. His work is thus accessible.'
William B Cohen, African History, Vol.41, 2000.
`As professor Dunwoodie reminds us, there is a huge secondary literature on Camus, but there is little understanding of the general literary milieu from which he sprang. This book provides just that, but it should be enjoyed for its own sake and not just as the key to Camus. It is a fine and revealing history of how the French writers in Algeria wanted their presence in North Africa to be understood.'
William B Cohen, African History, Vol.41, 2000.
