From the Inside Flap

Four of these stories are set on the shimmering desert fringes of Camus's native Algeria, and all of them first appeared in 1957, the year when he became the youngest French writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.

"I would call his pessimism 'solar',if you remember how much black there is in the sun" --Jean-Paul Sartre

"In France, the three vital writers are André Malraux, Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus. Of these, the greatest is Camus" --Arthur Koestler

"Powerful, jolting, thought-provoking parables, told skilfully and with detached passion" --Sunday Times

"These violent yet controlled stories confirm ... that Camus is no simple, superficial humanitarian. He is on the side of the angels, as he should be, but he gives the devil a very good run for his money" --Observer
