'My mother died today. Or maybe it was yesterday, I don't know.' Mersault will not pretend. Unmoved by the death of his mother, he refuses to show sadness just to satisfy the expectations of others. Then, when he commits a random act of violence on a sun-drenched beach in Algiers, his lack of emotion only compounds his guilt in the eyes of society. Albert Camus' portrayal of a man confronting the absurdity of human life became an existentialist classic. Yet it is also a book filled with quiet joy in the physical world, and this new translation, based on listening to recordings of Camus reading aloud, sensitively renders the subtleties and dreamlike atmosphere of l'Etranger.

Dieser Roman gibt dem namenlosen Toten aus »Der Fremde« von Camus ein Gesicht Ein Roman aus Algerien, der um die Welt geht: in Frankreich ein Riesenbestseller, in den USA und England als literarische Sensation gefeiert, jetzt in deutscher Übersetzung. Die Geschichte des namenlosen Arabers aus Camus’ weltberühmtem Roman »Der Fremde« – erzählt von dessen Bruder. Der alte Mann, der Nacht für Nacht in einer Bar in Oran seine Geschichte erzählt, ist der Bruder jenes Arabers, der 1942 von einem gewissen Meursault am Strand von Algier erschossen wurde – in einem der berühmtesten Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts. 70 Jahre später, mit all dem Ärger, der Angst und Frustration eines Lebens im Schatten dieses Todes, gibt der alte Mann seinem Bruder seinen Namen zurück. Der Araber aus Camus’ Roman »Der Fremde« bekommt so eine Identität und eine Geschichte. Eine Geschichte, die untrennbar mit der Algeriens verknüpft ist und doch gleichzeitig so berührend und persönlich, dass man das Buch nicht mehr aus der Hand legen kann. Ein großer Roman darüber, wie die Vergangenheit unsere Gegenwart prägt, und über die ungebrochene Kraft der Literatur, eine tiefere Erkenntnis, eine verborgene Wahrheit ans Licht zu bringen. Das Buch gilt jetzt schon als Klassiker – gleichwertig zu Camus’ Roman: »Ein großartiger Roman. In Zukunft wird man ›Der Fremde‹ und ›Der Fall Meursault – eine Gegendarstellung‹ nebeneinander lesen.« Le monde des livres

«Camus irrt sich nicht in seinem Roman. Das Drama sind nicht die, die durch die Hintertür zum Friedhof entwischen – und für die die Angst vor der Pest endlich vorbei war –, sondern die Lebenden, die in ihren stickigen Schlafzimmern Blut schwitzten, ohne der belagerten Stadt entfliehen zu können.» (Gabriel García Márquez) Die Stadt Oran wird von rätselhaften Ereignissen heimgesucht. Die Ratten kommen aus den Kanälen und verenden auf den Straßen. Kurze Zeit später sterben die ersten Menschen an einem heimtückischen Fieber: Die Pest wütet in der Stadt. Oran wird hermetisch abgeriegelt. Ein Entkommen ist nicht möglich. Albert Camus’ erfolgreichster Roman gehört zu den Klassikern der Weltliteratur. In ihm seziert er hellsichtig das menschliche Handeln im Angesicht einer Katastrophe.

The Stranger is a rite of passage for readers around the world. Since its publication in France in 1942, Camus’s novel has been translated into sixty languages and sold more than six million copies. It’s the rare novel that’s as at likely to be found in a teen’s backpack as in a graduate philosophy seminar. If the twentieth century produced a novel that could be called ubiquitous, The Stranger is it. How did a young man in his twenties who had never written a novel turn out a masterpiece that still grips readers more than seventy years later? With Looking for “The Stranger”, Alice Kaplan tells that story. In the process, she reveals Camus’s achievement to have been even more impressive—and more unlikely—than even his most devoted readers knew. Born in poverty in colonial Algeria, Camus started out as a journalist covering the criminal courts. The murder trials he attended, Kaplan shows, would be a major influence on the development and themes of The Stranger. She follows Camus to France, and, making deft use of his diaries and letters, re-creates his lonely struggle with the novel in Montmartre, where he finally hit upon the unforgettable first-person voice that enabled him to break through and complete The Stranger. Even then, the book’s publication was far from certain. France was straining under German occupation, Camus’s closest mentor was unsure of the book’s merit, and Camus himself was suffering from near-fatal tuberculosis. Yet the book did appear, thanks in part to a resourceful publisher, Gaston Gallimard, who was undeterred by paper shortages and Nazi censorship. The initial critical reception of The Stranger was mixed, and it wasn’t until after liberation that The Stranger began its meteoric rise. As France and the rest of the world began to move out of the shadow of war, Kaplan shows, Camus’s book— with the help of an aggressive marketing campaign by Knopf for their 1946 publication of the first English translation—became a critical and commercial success, and Camus found himself one of the most famous writers in the world. Suddenly, his seemingly modest tale of alienation was being seen for what it really was: a powerful parable of the absurd, an existentialist masterpiece. Few books inspire devotion and excitement the way The Stranger does. And it couldn’t have a better biographer than Alice Kaplan, whose books about twentieth-century French culture and history have won her legions of fans. No reader of Camus will want to miss this brilliant exploration.
