Camus, A Romance - Elizabeth Hawes

Sometimes a reader feels so close to certain books, it’s as if he or she knows the author intimately. Elizabeth Hawes became fascinated with Camus when she read his work in college. Forty years later, he was still on her mind and she set out to track him down. Camus: A Romance (Grove Press, $14) is a combination memoir/travelogue, biography/literary essay. We get the voices of both Hawes and Camus as Hawes chronicles her expeditions to the places where Camus lived, recounts her meetings with his surviving friends and family, and presents her research on the reception and legacy of his writing.
