Through this story of an ordinary man who unwittingly gets drawn into a senseless murder on a sun-drenched Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd." Now, in an illuminating new American translation by Matthew Ward, extraordinary for its exactitude and clarity, the original intent of The Stranger is made more immediate. This haunting novel has been given new life for generations to come.
