About this book
A memorable existential classic about the sometimes absurdity of life, and one of the most important works of literature in the 20th century that has been translated into 45 languages. Published in conjunction with Camus' other work, "The Plague".
Meursault is different. He will not lie. He will not pretend. He is true to himself. So when his mother dies and he is unmoved, he refuses to do the proper thing and grieve. Returning to Algiers after the funeral, he carries on life as usual until he becomes involved in a violent murder.
