Notes:
Translated from the French.
Set in Camus' native Algeria, this story centres around Meursault. The young French-Algerian leads an apparently unremarkable bachelor life until his involvment in a violent incident calls into question the fundamental values of society. 'One of those books that marks a reader's life indelibly' William Boyd'A compelling, dreamlike fable' GuardianIn The Outsider, Camus explores the alienation of an individual who refuses to conform to social norms. Meursault, his anti-hero, will not lie. When his mother dies, he refuses to show his emotions simply to satisfy the expectations of others. And when he commits a random act of violence on a sun-drenched beach near Algiers, his lack of remorse compounds his guilt in the eyes of society and the law. Yet he is as much a victim as a criminal.
