Algiers

Not actual book cover.

The title character is Meursault, an indifferent French Algerian described as “a citizen of France domiciled in North Africa, a man of the Mediterranean, an homme du midi yet one who hardly partakes of the traditional Mediterranean culture.” He attends his mother’s funeral. A few days later, he kills an Arab man in French Algiers, who was involved in a conflict with a friend. Meursault is tried and sentenced to death. The story is divided into two parts, presenting Meursault’s first-person narrative view before and after the murder, respectively.

The Stranger is a 1942 novel by French author Albert Camus.
