Publisher's Summary

Elegantly styled, Camus' profoundly disturbing novel of a Parisian lawyer's confessions is a searing study of modern amorality. 

Born in Algeria in 1913, Albert Camus published The Stranger - now one of the most widely read novels of this century - in 1942. Celebrated in intellectual circles, Camus was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957.

Take the leap of faith

Each word is masterfully written with an apparent or eventual purpose, read carefully and ironically.

Wonderful narration

The performance is absolutely astounding. I am enamored with the passion of the narrator who so eloquently tells the story with such skill and consistently.

It is Camus

It is difficult to be critical of anything written by Camus. Though artfully done this is my least favorite of his works. Again, it is artfully done. But, it is a first person narrative by a character I would describe as a boar.
