By Albert Camus
As the unconventional follows the protagonist, Patrice Mersault, to his victim's condo -- after which, fleeing, in a trip that takes him via levels of exile, hedonism, privation, and demise -it offers us a glimpse into the mind's eye of 1 of the good writers of the 20th century. For this is the younger Camus himself, in love with the ocean and solar, enraptured via ladies but disdainful of romantic love, and already formulating the philosophy of motion and ethical accountability that may make him primary to the concept of our time.
