Staff Reviews

Jacques Ferrandez captures Camus' classic with stunning artwork while also using dialog from the original book. Staying true to the original story and illustrating every scene as I had originally pictured it while reading, Ferrandez's graphic novel pays a great tribute to a ground breaking classic.

— From The Stranger: The Graphic Novel, by Albert Camus


The day his mother dies, Meursault notices that it is very hot on the bus that is taking him from Algiers to the retirement home where his mother lived; so hot that he falls asleep.

Later, while waiting for the wake to begin, the harsh electric lights in the room make him extremely uncomfortable, so he gratefully accepts the coffee the caretaker offers him and smokes a cigarette. The same burning sun that so oppresses him during the funeral walk will once again blind the calm, reserved Meursault as he walks along a deserted beach a few days later--leading him to commit an irreparable act.

This new illustrated edition of Camus's classic novelThe Stranger portrays an enigmatic man who commits a senseless crime and then calmly, and apparently indifferently, sits through his trial and hears himself condemned to death.
