Exile and the Kingdom (French: L'exil et le royaume) is a 1957 collection of six short stories by French writer Albert Camus. The underlying theme of these stories is human loneliness and feeling foreign and isolated in one's own society. Camus writes about outsiders living in Algeria who straddle the divide between the Muslim world and France. These works of fiction cover the whole variety of existentialism, or absurdism, as Camus himself insisted his philosophical ideas be called.

I was reading an article about Camus and Algeria which referred to his stories in EXILE AND THE KINGDOM and realized,I'd never read this book. Now that I have, I have to say it's a worthwhile but not an overwhelming experience. What distinguishes these stories is they have.

Albert Camus was born in Algeria in 1913. He spent the early years of his life in North Africa, where he worked at various jobs-in a weather bureau, in an automobile supply firm, in a shipping company-to help pay for his courses at the University of Algiers. He went on to become a journalist, and from 1935 to 1938 he ran the Theatre de l'Equipe, a theatrical company that produced plays by Malraux, Gide, Synge, Dostoyevsky, and others. His fiction, including The Stranger, The Plague, The Fall, and Exile and the Kingdom; his philosophical essays, "The Myth of Sisyphus" and "The Rebel"; and his plays have assured his preeminent position in modern letters.

The stories of Exile and the Kingdom explore the dilemma of being an outsider - even in one's own country - and of allegiance. His origin in Algeria and his experiences there in the thirties were dominating influences in his thought and work. Among the books she has translated are Jean-Paul Sartre's "The Family Idiot: Gustave Flaubert, 1821-1857," Honoré de Balzac's "Colonel Chabert," Simone de Beauvoir's "America Day by Day," and most recently René Daumal's "Mount Analogue".

Camus gave us so much that he deserves this respect. The O'Brian text has no introduction, no forward, just Camus translated well and the dedication to Frances. The EXILE and The KINGDOM is wonderful. That is enough for me. The Silent Man, The Adultrous Woman and The Artist's Life three of the greatest stroies ever written. I read this book cover to cover twice in succesion. Most books of short stories only have one captivating short story and idea. This book of stories was orginally published with the Novel the Fall.

I was reading an article about Camus and Algeria which referred to his stories in EXILE AND THE KINGDOM and realized ,I'd never read this book.Now that I have, I have to say it's a worthwhile but not an overwhelming experience.My favorite stories were the last two,Jonas and The Growing Stone.What distinguishes these stories is they have "meat".The other stories have an air of aridity to them.Many readers seem impressed by The Renegade, which is interesting .However it seems an exercise in exoticism and neurosis .The Adulterous Woman is a sketch about a dull woman's quasi awakening.The other two stories ,set in Algeria are okay but pretty inert.This is definitely not Camus at his best.

What a great collection! For those only familiar with The Stranger, this later representation of Camus' thought will come as a surprise. He is not at all the nihilist he's made out to be! If only he had lived a little longer, I'm sure we would have seen his work develop to its utmost.

Not my favorite book by Camus as it is a collection of short stories
  • Dagdage
This volume of short fiction by Albert Camus is easy to read and very provoking. The stories contained are varied and unique, but the message is similar to all. Man lives in exile. He constantly searches for a path home, spiritually and in physical terms. This message can be chilling because exile means loss, primarily psychological. The realization of this void is what makes them worthwhile.

I'm not much of a reader I have to admit, Like I tried reading game of thrones...insanely to many characters to keep track off lol I need visuals. But this book paints a picture were you feel like your there and I have only gotten into the first story becuase there is a few in this book and it is just great.

I adore Camus and saw a recent film with Viggo Mortensen which used a short story from this collection.

Great!
Justin O'Brien's translation renders beautifully into English six of Camus' finest stories, including the masterpiece "The Guest."
