The hero of this book of extraordinary intensity is modern man himself. All through it one voice is heard - the voice of Camus, convincing us that he is the conscience of our troubled epoch. Here, in some of the finest pages he has ever written, a wife betrays her husband, leaving his bed to give herself to the desert night; a missionary, adoring to savages who have tortured him, makes us understand the nature of treason; a trusting schoolteacher, who might be any one of us, reaps hatred for a deed of love; in a satiric fable, a carefree artist is caught between society's values and the pursuit of his solitary star; and French engineer purifies himself through an act of brotherhood in the Brazilian jungle. Translated into English from the French by Justin O'Brien.

(Key Words: Albert Camus, Exile, Nobel Prize Winners, Fiction, Novels, Conscience, Brazil, Justin O'Brien).
