View all copies of this ISBN edition:

'Have you noticed that Amsterdam's concentric circles resemble the circles of hell?' Jean-Baptiste Clamence addresses a chance acquaintance in an Amsterdam bar. A successful Parisian Barrister - the epitome of good citizenship and decent behaviour - he has come to realise the deep-seated hypocrisy of his existence. His brilliant and discomforting monologue gradually saps, then undermines, our own complacency.

From the Inside Flap:

Elegantly styled, Camus' profoundly disturbing novel of a Parisian lawyer's confessions is a searing study of modern amorality.

About the Author:

Albert Camus is the author of a number of best-selling and highly influential works, all of which are published by Penguin. They include THE FALL, THE PLAGUE and THE OUTSIDER. He is remembered as one of the few writers to have shaped the intellectual climate of post-war France, but beyond that, his fame has been international.
