Books: Camus, A Romance

Never quite as taken with Camus as Elizabeth Hawes, biographer and author of "Camus, A Romance" I admit I read all his books, went to Paris to find him, years too late, and cling to the notion that in his steps I'd find a literary path.

A must read for those who thought existentially and live absurdly.

And a memorable quote: "In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

NB: @ 25 November 2009 - It appears France's President is requesting permission from Camus' children to change the writer's burial place. Like so many issues, it has become a political football, a news item and a controversy.
