The Stranger

Albert Camus

About the book

When a young Algerian named Meursault kills a man, his subsequent imprisonment and trial are puzzling and absurd. The apparently amoral Meursault, who puts little stock in ideas like love and God, seems to be on trial less for his murderous actions, and more for what the authorities believe is his deficient character.

Albert Camus' The Stranger stands as perhaps the greatest existentialist tale ever conceived.
