Famous French author Albert Camus died unexpectedly at age 46 in a tragic car accident. Found lying in the mud near his outstretched hand was the unfinished hand-written manuscript of a book intended to be his greatest work. After being held back for political reasons, this manuscript was finally published, in its unfinished state, during 1994. Unlike Camus' more famous philosophic books (The Stranger), this book is full of complex feelings and memories. It's almost impossible to believe that this brilliant masterpiece is essentially a dead writer's first rough draft! The book is an unfinished autobiography of Camus early life where he was raised by his impoverished mother in French Algiers. The most disappointing thing about this book, of course, is that it doesn't have much of an ending.
