Description
Elizabeth Hawes’s passionate pursuit of Camus began with her college thesis. A biography-memoir, Camus, a Romance reveals the man behind the famous name: the French-Algerian of humble birth and Mediterranean passions; the TB-stricken exile who edited the World War II resistance newspaper Combat; the pied noir in anguish over the Algerian War; the Don Juan who loved a multitude of women; the writer in search of a truer voice. These form only the barest outlines of the rich tapestry of Camus’s life, which Elizabeth Hawes chronicles alongside her own experience following in his footsteps, meeting his friends and family, and trying to enter his solitude.

display_description Elizabeth Hawes, from the writing of her college honors thesis on Albert Camus, began a forty-year quest to creat a portrait of Camus as a man and writer. She chronicles her own experiences as she followed in his footsteps, visiting the places in which he'd lived and worked, and meeting his friends and family. This is the story of Camus, himself, and of the relationship between a reader and a beloved writer.
