First published in France, by the Gallimard publishing house, of whom one of the sons, Michael, perished with Camus in the fatal car crash on a wet January road in France en route to Paris in l960. Much research and many interviews were devotedly searched out by the author for an accurate and heart rending account of the life of one of the most remarkable intellectuals of the twentieth century. Photographs are included from childhood and throughout his life, as well as more information on his two life time tutors and friends, Msrs.. Germain and Grenier, the two professors who recognized his talents as a child in elementary school in Algiers. From his beginning, orphaned by his father, raised in poverty by a deaf mute mother and tyrannical grandmother, he was able to catapault into fame and recogntion by his generation. Many hours of good reading and new information in this volume. A five star by his best biographer.
