In the Exile and the Kingdom, Camus brings us a collection of complex short stories.
Rich in ambiance and personnae, the themes include supressed feminism, a missionary "gone bad", defeated union men, humorous satire in the "Artist at Work", and in the end, how a man fulfills a debt of honor. Common to each story underlies man's eternal quest for truth and meaning, each in his own place and time. How the major personality resolves his or her conflicts, and gifts the reader with a tale to remember has been achieved by Camus "with flying colors" ! Another five star review for Camus !
