Publisher Description

Essential reading for old fans and new admirers of Albert Camus' classic quarantine novel THE PLAGUE - a new bestseller amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

'Brilliant.' The Times
'Joyous ... A unique critical talent.' TLS

Albert Camus is one of the most famous French writers of the twentieth century, a Nobel Laureate celebrated for his classic existentialist novel The Outsider and urgently relevant allegory of a pandemic, The Plague. But what about his controversial attitudes to race, especially his portrayal of Arabs versus Europeans, and French colonialism in Algeria?

As provocative and brilliantly argued as it was in 1970, Conor Cruise O'Brien's Camus is a groundbreaking postcolonial critique which revolutionised how Camus was viewed by a new generation.
