Author(s): Albert Camus; Justin O'Brien (Translator)
This volume contains some of Camus's most personal and lyrical writing, as he reflects on his identity and childhood in Algeria and celebrates the beauty of the Mediterranean. The Wrong Side and the Right Side, Camus's first book and most openly autobiographical work, describes his early years in a working-class neighbourhood in Algiers and includes memorable portraits of his mother, grandmother and uncle. Nuptials rejoices in the sun, landscape and sea, and the physical and spiritual freedom they offer to even the poorest. And in Summer, Camus evocatively depicts the sunlit cities of Algiers and Oran.
