Camus, A Romance

By Elizabeth Hawes

Backorder (temporarily out of stock)


Albert Camus is best known for his contribution to twentieth-century literature. But who was he, beneath the trappings of fame? Camus, a Romance reveals the French-Algerian of humble birth; the TB-stricken exile editing the war resistance newspaper Combat; the pied noir in anguish over the Algerian War; the Don Juan who loved a multitude of women. These form only the barest outlines of Camus's life, which Elizabeth Hawes chronicles alongside her own experience following in his footsteps. Camus, a Romance is at once biography and memoir--wrought with passion and detail, it is the story not only of Camus, but of the relationship between a reader and a most beloved writer.
