“Here now, for the first time in a complete English translation, we have Camus’s three little volumes of essays, plus a selection of his critical comments on literature and his own place in it. As might be expected, the main interest of these writings is that they illuminate new facets of his usual subject matter.”—The New York Times Book Review
“A new single work for American readers that stands among the very finest.”—The Nation

Lyrical part of the book is absolutely out of this world, Camus is a genuis in the art of language, i recommend anyone to read this book! The critical part of it I wasnt a big fan or, I found it was too pessimistic, however the lyrical part made it all worth it..

I really enjoyed this book. I purchased it a long time ago and find myself going back to it because of the poetic tone of the essays. The imagery of the sea and the sunlight are pure poetry.
