CAMUS, ALBERT.  French novelist and philosopher. Arrived for a visit just after World War II, suffering from influenza. Journal entries over the following two weeks reflect ambivalence toward America and Americans. He was awed, however, by the size and bizarre ambience of New York. Albert Camus’ American Journals, first published in Great Britain, Hamish Hamilton, 1989. London, Penguin Group, 1978; Editions Gallimard. Copyright 1988 Paragon House [first English- language edition].
