From the cover: “Albert Camus is among the most significant writers of the twentieth century, and one of French culture’s most appealing and complex figures: a working class Algerian who became the youngest French writer ever to win the Nobel Prize, a thinker with film star looks, a novelist and playwright, actor and director, and a political militant with a turbulent emotional life. His novels, The Plague and The Outsider, have a timeless power and appeal and are studied all over the world. In 1994 his posthumously published last novel, The First Man, became an instant bestseller, reviving his popularity and prompting a reassessment by the critics.
