The Plague

The PlagueT489932002
"April 29th; lunchtime. Found Mr Michel in the street outside the apartment. Walk unsteady. Eyes unnaturally bright." Dr Rieux is noticing things. A rat on the stairs, where it has no right to be. A sore throat becoming a fever. The first signs of panic. It all amounts to a troubling diagnosis... so what's the cure? The Plague is Albert Camus' electrifying story about living through a time of crisis and fighting back against despair. Written in the aftermath of the Nazis' march across Europe, it struck a powerful chord with millions struggling to understand the fascist 'plague' that had just overwhelmed them.
Book by Albert Camus (La Peste)
