Publisher's Summary

One of the most influential works of this century, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays is a crucial exposition of existentialist thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide; the question of living or not living in a universe devoid of order or meaning. 

With lyric eloquence, Albert Camus brilliantly posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existence and the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity.

the narrator was perfect for the writer. the book gives true insight to life . although sometime overly flamblyant is it quit ornate. A true clasic and a must read .

Brilliant work, excellently narrated

I have been relistened to parts of this for the past month, and it has allowed me to better recognize how to live to the fullest. As Camus writes, "one does not become aware of the absurd without being tempted to write a manual of happiness." This is one such manual. I'm very thankful this is available as a very well narrated audiobook. If you have not read it, do so right away!
