Geniune Classic. I forgot to breathe until I finished the book.

Review quote

" "The Stranger" is a strikingly modern text and Matthew Ward's translation will enable readers to appreciate why Camus's stoical anti-hero and - devious narrator remains one of the key expressions of a postwar Western malaise, and one of the cleverest exponents of a literature of ambiguity." - from the Introduction by Peter Dunwoodie "From the Hardcover edition."
