The Fall

Author(s): Camus Albert


Mordant, brilliant, elegantly styled, The Fall is a novel of the conscience of modern man in the face of evil.  In a seedy bar in Amsterdam, Clamence, an expatriate Frenchman, indulges in a calculated confession.  He recalls his past life as a respected Parisian lawyer, a champion of noble causes, and, privately, a libertine - yet one apparently immune to judgement.  As his narrative unfolds, ambiguities amass; every triumph reveals a failure, every motive a hidden treachery.  The irony of his rcital anticipates his downfall - and implicates us all.
