Product Description

On the 50th anniversary of its original publication, this brilliant new translation of the French Nobel Laureate's collection of short stories will provide a fresh look at their accomplishment. From a variety of masterfully rendered perspectives, these stories depict people at decisive moments of revelation. Whether set in North Africa, Paris, or Brazil, the stories have a common theme: modern humanity, condemned by nature and circumstances to spiritual exile, perpetually seeking an inner kingdom in which to be reborn. This is Camus writing at the height of his powers, possessed by the very core and edge of his being.

Editorial Reviews

This 50th-anniversary edition of Camus's short story collection is the first new English translation in as many years. Along with a fresh text, this edition offers a new preface written by Nobel winner Orhan Pamuk.
