Outsider


Whilst in Switzerland recently I discussed briefly with my host French authors including, specifically, Camus.

Tonight I was trying to run a digital copy of The Battle of Algiers - it required a subtitle file which I eventually found, downloaded and got working. Pausing for a cuppa, from the kitchen I could see on TV Russell Crowe on what was obviously The Book Club on ABC, too good to miss. They were discussing a Camus - The Outsiders (L’√Čtranger). The book is set in Algiers.

Yeah, sounds lame I know. But the Camus reference had been bugging me for weeks until this little episode occurred - for me, it was a sort of explanation. Ah, Jeez, I'm not making it at all clear, am I...
