Set in Amsterdam, the book consists of a series of dramatic monologues by the self-proclaimed “judge-penitent” Jean-Baptiste Clamence, as he reflects upon his life to a stranger. In what amounts to a confession, Clamence tells of his success as a wealthy Parisian defense lawyer who was highly respected by his colleagues. His crisis, and his ultimate “fall” from grace, was meant to invoke, in secular terms, the fall of man from the Garden of Eden. The Fall explores themes of innocence, imprisonment, non-existence, and truth.
The Fall is a philosophical novel by Albert Camus.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
- Perhaps the most beautiful and the least understood journey.
- Interesting and deep.
- An experience to shape your whole outlook towards life.
