Le 19 mars 1944, Albert Camus et Maria Casarès se croisent chez Michel Leiris. L’ancienne élève du Conservatoire, originaire de La Corogne et fille d’un républicain espagnol en exil, n’a que vingt et un ans. Elle a débuté sa carrière en 1942 au Théâtre des Mathurins, au moment où Albert Camus publiait L’Étranger chez Gallimard. L’écrivain vit alors seul à Paris, la guerre l’ayant tenu éloigné de son épouse Francine, enseignante à Oran. Sensible au talent de l’actrice, Albert Camus lui confie le rôle de Martha pour la création du Malentendu en juin 1944. Et durant la nuit du Débarquement, Albert Camus et Maria Casarès deviennent amants. Ce n’est encore que le prélude d’une grande histoire amoureuse, qui ne prendra son vrai départ qu’en 1948. Jusqu’à la mort accidentelle de l'écrivain en janvier 1960, Albert et Maria n’ont jamais cessé de s’écrire, notamment lors des longues semaines de séparation dues à leur engagement artistique et intellectuel, aux séjours au grand air ou aux obligations familiales. Sur fond de vie publique et d’activité créatrice (les livres et les conférences, pour l’écrivain ; la Comédie-Française, les tournées et le TNP pour l’actrice), leur correspondance croisée révèle quelle fut l’intensité de leur relation intime, s’éprouvant dans le manque et l’absence autant que dans le consentement mutuel, la brûlure du désir, la jouissance des jours partagés, les travaux en commun et la quête du véritable amour, de sa parfaite formulation et de son accomplissement. Nous savions que l’œuvre d’Albert Camus était traversée par la pensée et l’expérience de l’amour. La publication de cette immense correspondance révèle une pierre angulaire à cette constante préoccupation. "Quand on a aimé quelqu’un, on l’aime toujours", confiait Maria Casarès bien après la mort d’Albert Camus ; "lorsqu’une fois, on n’a plus été seule, on ne l’est plus jamais".

Le 19 mars 1944, Albert Camus et Maria Casarès se croisent chez Michel Leiris, lors de la fameuse représentation-lecture du Désir attrapé par la queue de Pablo Picasso. L'ancienne élève du Conservatoire national d'art dramatique, originaire de La Corogne (Galice) et fille d'un ancien président du Conseil de la Seconde République espagnole exilé à Paris en 1936, n'a alors que vingt-deux ans. Parlant parfaitement français, elle a débuté sa carrière d'actrice en 1942 au Théâtre des Mathurins, au moment où Albert Camus publiait L'Étranger et Le Mythe de Sisyphe chez Gallimard. Albert Camus vit alors seul à Paris, la guerre l'ayant éloigné depuis deux ans de son épouse Francine, enseignante à Oran. Sensible au jeu, au tempérament et à la beauté de l'actrice, Albert Camus lui confie le rôle de Martha pour la création de sa pièce Le Malentendu en juin 1944. Et durant la nuit du Débarquement en Normandie, sortant d'une soirée chez leur ami Charles Dullin, Albert Camus et Maria Casarès deviennent amants. Il ne s'agit là encore que du prélude à une grande histoire amoureuse ; car Maria décide de mettre fin à cette relation qui lui semble sans avenir, au vu de la situation conjugale de son amant. Mais quatre ans exactement après leur première déclaration, le 6 juin 1948, Albert et Maria se retrouvent, par un heureux hasard, sur un boulevard parisien ; leur histoire commune reprend alors, plus passionnée que jamais, et sans interruption jusqu'à la mort accidentelle de l'écrivain, au début de l'année 1960. Durant toutes ces années, Albert et Maria n'ont jamais cessé de s'écrire, notamment lors des longues semaines de séparation dues à leur engagement artistique et intellectuel, aux séjours au grand air ou aux obligations familiales. Sur fond de vie publique et d'activité créatrice (les livres et les conférences, pour l'écrivain ; les tournées avec la Comédie-Française et le TNP pour l'actrice), leur correspondance croisée, demeurée inédite jusqu'à ce jour, révèle quelle fut l'intensité de leur relation intime, s'éprouvant dans le manque et l'absence autant que dans le consentement mutuel, la brûlure du désir, la jouissance des jours partagés, les travaux en commun et la quête du véritable amour, de sa parfaite formulation et de son accomplissement. Nous savions que l'oeuvre d'Albert Camus était traversée par la pensée et l'expérience de l'amour, jusqu'aux dossiers préparatoires du Premier Homme. La publication de cette immense correspondance révèle la pierre angulaire de cette constante préoccupation : l'amour, l'inévitable amour. "Quand on a aimé quelqu'un, on l'aime toujours", confiait Maria Casarès bien après la mort d'Albert Camus ; "lorsqu'une fois, on n'a plus été seule, on ne l'est plus jamais".

In his first novel, A Happy Death, written when he was in his early twenties and retrieved from his private papers following his death in I960, Albert Camus laid the foundation for The Stranger, focusing in both works on an Algerian clerk who kills a man in cold blood. But he also revealed himself to an extent that he never would in his later fiction. For if A Happy Death is the study of a rule-bound being shattering the fetters of his existence, it is also a remarkably candid portrait of its author as a young man. As the novel follows the protagonist, Patrice Mersault, to his victim's house -- and then, fleeing, in a journey that takes him through stages of exile, hedonism, privation, and death -it gives us a glimpse into the imagination of one of the great writers of the twentieth century. For here is the young Camus himself, in love with the sea and sun, enraptured by women yet disdainful of romantic love, and already formulating the philosophy of action and moral responsibility that would make him central to the thought of our time. Translated from the French by Richard Howard

As a philosophy teacher, mentor, and friend, Jean Grenier (1898?1971) had an enormous influence on the young Albert Camus (1913?1960), who, in fact, acknowledged that Grenier?s Les Iles had touched the very core of his sensibility and provided him with both a ?terrain for reflection, and a format? that he would later use for his own essays. Their correspondence, beginning when the seventeen-year-old Camus was Grenier?s student at the Grand Lycäe of Algiers, documents the younger man?s struggle to become a writer and find his own voice, a period in which he turned frequently to his mentor for advice, comfort, and direction. The letters cover a period of almost thirty years, from 1932 to Camus?s untimely death in 1960. Because Camus destroyed the earlier correspondence he received, the first twenty-six letters in the volume are his only; the full begins in 1940. ø These enlightening letters offer invaluable glimpses into the development of Camus?s aesthetic ideas, literary production, and political stance. In contrast to the correspondence of Grenier, who throughout remains somewhat reticent about his life and doubtful about himself and his works, Camus?s letters are a window into his most profound thoughts and sensitivities, delving deeply into his psyche and, at times, revealing a side of the writer unfamiliar to us. Undoubtedly they allow us a better understanding of Albert Camus, the man and the artist.

Exploring themes that preoccupied Albert Camus--absurdity, silence, revolt, fidelity, and moderation--Robert Zaretsky portrays a moralist who refused to be fooled by the nobler names we assign to our actions, and who pushed himself, and those about him, to challenge the status quo. For Camus, rebellion against injustice is the human condition.

Albert Camus, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, died in a car crash in 1960. He was 46. He left a substantial but unfinished oeuvre of exceptional beauty and power. Writer, journalist, thinker, playwright and producer, Camus was a man of tremendous vitality, a passionate defender of freedom who put his art at the service of human dignity. He fought constantly against oppression and exploitation and set an example that is still worthy today. Using a combination of extracts from his works, photographs and other archive material, some published here for the first time, Camuss daughter Catherine leads us clearly but discreetly through the fascinating life and work of a solitary but universal figure.

“Dave Moore's work on this collection is simply awesome.... It should become and remain the definitive reference book for Beat scholars forever.” —Carolyn Cassady Neal Cassady is best remembered today as Jack Kerouac’s muse and the basis for the character “Dean Moriarty” in Kerouac’s classic On The Road, and as one of Ken Kesey’s merriest of Merry Pranksters, the driver of the psychedelic bus “Further,” immortalized in Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. This collection brings together more than two hundred letters to Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, John Clellon Holmes, and other Beat generation luminaries, as well as correspondence between Neal and his wife, Carolyn. These amazing letters cover Cassady’s life between the ages of 18 and 41 and finish just months before his death in February 1968. Brilliantly edited by Dave Moore, this unique collection presents the “Soul of the Beat Generation” in his own words—sometimes touching and tender, sometimes bawdy and hilarious. Here is the real Neal Cassady—raw and uncut.

Long before we began to speak of "public intellectuals," the ideas of "the public" and "the intellectual" raised consternation among many European philosophers and political theorists. Thinking in Public examines the ambivalence these linked ideas provoked in the generation of European Jewish thinkers born around 1900. By comparing the lives and works of Hannah Arendt, Emmanuel Levinas, and Leo Strauss, who grew up in the wake of the Dreyfus Affair and studied with the philosopher—and sometime National Socialist—Martin Heidegger, Benjamin Aldes Wurgaft offers a strikingly new perspective on the relationship between philosophers and politics. Rather than celebrate or condemn the figure of the intellectual, Wurgaft argues that the stories we tell about intellectuals and their publics are useful barometers of our political hopes and fears. What ideas about philosophy itself, and about the public's capacity for reasoned discussion, are contained in these stories? And what work do we think philosophers and other thinkers can and should accomplish in the world beyond the classroom? The differences between Arendt, Levinas, and Strauss were great, but Wurgaft shows that all three came to believe that the question of the social role of the philosopher was the question of their century. The figure of the intellectual was not an ideal to be emulated but rather a provocation inviting these three thinkers to ask whether truth and politics could ever be harmonized, whether philosophy was a fundamentally worldly or unworldly practice.

In 1953 Czeslaw Milosz published The Captive Mind, his classic study of how intellectuals in postwar Eastern Europe were tempted to collaborate with the Communist system under which they lived. But they were hardly unique. European history of the past century is full of examples of philosophers, writers, and jurists who, whether they lived in democratic, Communist, or fascist societies, supported and defended totalitarian principles and horrific regimes.

"OK, Joe!" the American lieutenant calls out to his driver. He hops into his jeep and heads out through French countryside just liberated from the Nazis. With him is the narrator of this novel, Louis, a Frenchman engaged by the American Army as an interpreter. Louis serves a group of American officers charged with bringing GIs to account for crimes—including rape and murder—against French citizens. The friendly banter of the American soldiers and the beautiful Breton landscape stand in contrast to Louis's task and his growing awareness of the moral failings of the Americans sent to liberate France. For not only must Louis translate the accounts of horrific crimes, he comes to realize that the accused men are almost all African American. Based on diaries that the author kept during his service as a translator for the U.S. Army in the aftermath of D-Day, OK, Joe follows Louis and the Americans as they negotiate with witnesses, investigate the crimes, and stage the courts-martial. Guilloux has an uncanny ear for the snappy speech of the GIs and a tenderness for the young, unworldly men with whom he spends his days, and, in evocative vignettes and dialogues, he sketches the complex intersection of hope and disillusionment that prevailed after the war. Although the American presence in France has been romanticized in countless books and movies, OK, Joe offers something exceedingly rare: a penetrating French perspective on post-D-Day GI culture, a chronicle of trenchant racism and lost ideals.
