The Stranger by Albert Camus, Matthew Ward (Translator)

  • Aug 22, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This month we decided to try a book that is listed as one of the best books of ALL TIME!

From Inside the Flap: Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd."

Born in Algeria in 1913, Albert Camus published The Stranger–now one of the most widely read novels of this century–in 1942. Celebrated in intellectual circles, Camus was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957. On January 4, 1960, he was killed in a car accident.

This book was originally published in 1942 in French, so we are reading the 1989 translation by Matthew Ward. There are other versions so if you can't find this one, I would try to find another one.

    I am not going to be able to make it tonight, I am on vicodin and a muscle relaxer for low back pain and I don't feel comfortable driving on these meds.
