THE FIRST MAN offers an incredibly moving account of Camus' poverty-stricken childhood in Algeria, the love of his silent mother, and the remarkable figure of an old schoolteacher who saved him from ignorance. Camus was working on a manuscript version of the book when he was killed in a car acident with his publisher Michel Gallimard. THE FIRST MAN was first published in 1995 to international acclaim.

About the Author

Albert Camus was born in Algeria in 1913. The works that established his international reputation include THE PLAGUE, THE FALL, THE REBEL and THE OUTSIDER. Camus died in a road accident in 1960 and is remembered as one of the greatest philsophical novelists of the twentieth century.

Vera on
This novel has a quality which most books lack. I am not sure what to call it except perhaps it is the simple yet provoking play on words that Camus executes-most brilliantly I must add. The novel rings with purity, of human emotions and the unity of life. It is one of Camus' best works, however it does not delve into philosphical ideas in extremity as in his previous novels. A much lighter read.
