Join us Tuesday, May 24th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss The Stranger by Albert Camus
With the intrigue of a psychological thriller, The Stranger—Camus’s masterpiece—gives us the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach.
Behind the subterfuge, Camus explores what he termed “the nakedness of man faced with the absurd” and describes the condition of reckless alienation and spiritual exhaustion that characterized so much of twentieth-century life.
