'An irresistibly brilliant examination of modern conscience' The New York Times

Jean-Baptiste Clamence is a soul in turmoil. Over several drunken nights in an Amsterdam bar, he regales a chance acquaintance with his story. From this successful former lawyer and seemingly model citizen a compelling, self-loathing catalogue of guilt, hypocrisy and alienation pours forth. The Fall (1956) is a brilliant portrayal of a man who has glimpsed the hollowness of his existence. But beyond depicting one man's disillusionment, Camus's novel exposes the universal human condition and its absurdities - for our innocence that, once lost, can never be recaptured ...

'Camus is the accused, his own prosecutor and advocate. The Fall might have been called "The Last Judgement" '

“Did not disappoint”

It was not my first time reading Camus. Definitely not your typical storyline or storyteller so it might not be for everyone. Throughout the book you get to hear the main character (and only him) telling his life... More
