Description

‘An irresistibly brilliant examination of modern conscience’ The New York Times Jean-Baptiste Clamence is a soul in turmoil. Over several drunken nights in an Amsterdam bar, he regales a chance acquaintance with his story.

The Fall (1956) is a brilliant portrayal of a man who has glimpsed the hollowness of his existence. But beyond depicting one man’s disillusionment, Camus’s novel exposes the universal human condition and its absurdities – for our innocence that, once lost, can never be recaptured … ‘Camus is the accused, his own prosecutor and advocate. The Fall might have been called “The Last Judgement” ‘ Olivier Todd show more
