by Albert Camus
In The Stranger, Camus examines the core tenants of the absurdist philosophy that he espoused. Does life have any meaning? Is life fair, and ultimately, does it matter if it’s not? In the story, a man commits murder, but seems unfazed by unimportant considerations such as life and death.
For the reading project, I obtained a very new English translation of The Stranger, released in 2011. It’s a paperback copy, 96 pages in length.
