It's time to move on to the next novel on the list - The Stranger by Albert Camus.
On a side note, my goal for 2013 was to read 9 novels from the list and, with the finish of Native Son, I've accomplished (and now am exceeding!) my goal. I can actually see the end of the novel list in sight!
Now... a few facts about Albert Camus:
- Born in French-Algeria
- His works, including The Stranger, were published in French (someday, if my French is ever good enough, perhaps I'll read one of his books in his native language! Ah, lofty goals!)
- He won a Nobel Prize in Literature, the 2nd youngest person to receive one (after Rudyard Kipling)
- Besides being an author, he was also a journalist and philosopher
- He had many publications - novels, short stories, non-fiction, plays, and essays
