Publisher Description

With the intrigue of a psychological thriller, Camus's masterpiece gives us the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach. 

Behind the intrigue, Camus explores what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd" and describes the condition of reckless alienation and spiritual exhaustion that characterized so much of twentieth-century life. 

First published in 1946; now in translation by Matthew Ward.

Surprisingly Funny

Excellent read and very unique. Would highly recommend if you’ve got a couple hours to kill

Deep

The level that this novel made me think is otherworldly. This novel reaches depths that, simply put, are almost imperceptible without some form of interpretation. This is truly a well written masterpiece!!

Quick and insightful

It is a quick and easy read (I finished it in a few hours) that I couldn’t put down. It’s a compelling story with insightful themes in the later chapters.
