About This Item

Knopf, 1995. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. Unmarked. Unclipped dust jacket. End papers illustrated with image of the manuscript. The First Man was Camus' final work. Translated by David Hapgood. 326p. Camus summons up the sights, sounds and textures of a childhood circumscribed by poverty and a father's death yet redeemed by the austere beauty of Algeria and the boy's attachment to his nearly deaf-mute mother.

Synopsis

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. From the Hardcover edition.
