I loved this book so much I found myself reading it increasingly slowly because I didn't want it to end I love the way the author wove together the history of the book The Stranger with Camus' life as it relates to the book I read the Gilbert translation about fifty years ago while in college and the Ward translation three years ago Although I loved the book years ago the Ward translation is much better This book explains why It's all about word choice the uality which makes Camus such a great writer I wish I could read French Nuances are difficult to translate I hadn't realized how sick Camus was I know nothing of treatments but eating red meat is hard for me to imagine as having any validity in the treatment of tuberculosis I still have trouble understanding how Mersault is an honest man I believe honesty is than not lying and than not following conventions that you don't value Being honest I believe involves empathy since we are social animals For me Mersault shows no empathy I don't see how he can be viewed as heroic as some seem to think A silly thing I got a kick out of when Camus autographed the book he often wrote something like To avoid being executed be sure to cry at your mother's funeral
