A Happy Death.

First American edition of Albert Camus' A Happy Death

A Happy Death.

CAMUS, Albert.


Item Number: 119628

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1972.

First American edition of Camus’ first novel, published over 30 years after it was written and 11 years after his death. Octavo, original cloth. Translated from the French by Richard Howard. Afterword and Notes by Jean Sarocchi. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Jacket photograph by Henri Cartier-Bresson.

In many ways A Happy Death foreshadows The Stranger, but its most striking difference - beyond its differences of plot and intention - is that her Camus reveals more of himself than in his later, more mythic fiction. At the root of the novel's drama is the existential concern: how is one to live in order to have a happy death?
