The Plague by Albert Camus
What would it be like to find your city, your village, your country, shut off from the rest of the world, the citizens confined to their homes and the contagion spreads, infecting thousands, and subjecting thousands more to quarantine? How would you cope if an epidemic disrupted daily life, closing schools, offices, restaurants and everything? Social gatherings, sporting events and concerts, conferences, festivals and travel plans on indefinite hold? Albert Camus provided a brilliant, astonishingly detailed and penetrating answer to these questions in this novel. Complete & unabridged. Translated from the original by Stuart Gilbert. 272 pages. Good quality paper.
