The Outsider by Albert Camus and
The Mersault Investigation by Kamel Daoud.
One of the 20th Century’s great cult books, Camus’ The Outsider retains its fascination as a classic study of alienation, examining the context and consequences of solitary anti-hero, Mersault’s meaningless murder of an Arab on an Algerian beach. Seventy years on, Kamel Daoud’s award winning debut, The Mersault Investigation, both complements Camus’ novel and offers a pointed critique of its colonial assumptions.
