Plague (01 Edition) Cover

 

Staff Pick

The Algerian city of Oran is set upon by plague and sealed off from the rest of the world, its citizens imprisoned not only with the disease but also with each other. Or are they?

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new translation, by Robin Buss, of Camus' second most popular book after "The Outsider".

Synopsis:

During the 1940s a plague descends on the Algerian town of Oran. This plague brings its terror, while also inspiring a courageous resistance. This is a tale of natural calamity: a slaughter as absurd as the habits it supersedes.
