Summary
  • When a young Algerian named Meursault kills a man, his subsequent imprisonment and trial are puzzling and absurd. The apparently amoral Meursault--who puts little stock in ideas like love and God--seems to be on trial less for his murderous actions, and more for what the authorities believe is his deficient character
  • Since this story was written and published in English, in 1946, Albert Camus's first novel, The Stranger has had a profound inpact on millions of American readers
