From the Publisher A biography in text and pictures of the highly influential, iconic writer, from his daughter "My children and grandchildren never got to know him. I wanted to go through all the photos for their sake. To rediscover his laugh, his lack of pretension, his generosity, to meet this highly observant, warm-hearted person once more, the man who steered me along the path of life. To show, as Séverine Gaspari once wrote, that Albert Camus was in essence a ''person among people, who in the midst of them all, strove to become genuine.''"  —Catherine Camus Using selected texts, photographs, and previously unpublished documents, Catherine Camus skillfully and easily takes readers through the fascinating life and work of her father, Albert Camus, who, in his defense of the individual, also saw himself as the voice of the downtrodden. The winner of the Nobel prize for literature, Albert Camus died suddenly and tragically in 1960. He was only 46. There are rumors to this day that the Russian KGB was behind the car crash. Writer, journalist, philosopher, playwright, and producer, he was a shining defender of freedom, whose art and person were dedicated to serving the dignity in humanity. In his tireless struggle against all forms of repression, he was a ceaseless critic of humanity''s hubris; the same struggle can still be felt today.
