The stranger by Albert Camus ( Book )
19 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 3,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A young Algerian, Meursault, afflicted with a sort of aimless inertia, becomes embroiled in the petty intrigues of a local pimp and, somewhat inexplicably, ends up killing a man. Once he's imprisoned and eventually brought to trial, his crime, it becomes apparent, is not so much the arguably defensible murder he has committed as it is his deficient character. In the story of an ordinary man who unwittingly gets drawn into a senseless murder on a sun-drenched Algerian beach, Camus was exploring what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd". Now in a new American translation, the classic has been given new life for generations to come
The stranger by Albert Camus ( Recording )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When a young Algerian named Meursault kills a man, his subsequent imprisonment and trial are puzzling and absurd. The apparently amoral Meursault--who puts little stock in ideas like love and God--seems to be on trial less for his murderous actions, and more for what the authorities believe is his deficient character
The collected stories of Colette by Colette ( Book )
3 editions published between 1984 and 1988 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
100 stories dating from 1908 to 1945
The fantastic family Whipple by Matthew Ward ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For every child who's ever dreamed of being in the Guinness Book of World Records comes the story of eleven-year-old Arthur Whipple and his fantastic family of world record breakers...Unfortunately, unlike his siblings, Arthur hasn't broken a single, solitary world record! But when the Whipples suffer a spate of catastrophes and a curious amount of attention from a pair of irregularly sized and unusually menacing clowns, Arthur might be the only one who can save his family from losing their collective crown...or worse."--Publisher's website
