(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)
Albert Camus's spare, laconic masterpiece about a Frenchman who murders an Arab in Algeria is famous for having diagnosed, with a clarity almost scientific, that condition of reckless alienation and spiritual exhaustion that characterized so much of twentieth-century life.
Possessing both the force of a parable and the excitement of a perfectly executed thriller, "The Stranger" is the work of one of the most engaged and intellectually alert writers of the past century.
Translated by Matthew Ward

Industry Reviews

"The Stranger is a strikingly modern text and Matthew Ward's translation will enable readers to appreciate why Camus's stoical anti-hero and -devious narrator remains one of the key expressions of a postwar Western malaise, and one of the cleverest exponents of a literature of ambiguity." -from the Introduction by Peter Dunwoodie
