The Meursault Investigation

Camus Revisited - An Evening with Kamel Daoud at the French Institute

24/06/2015 from 18:15 to 20:45

In The Meursault Investigation (winner of the Goncourt Prize for the First Novel), Kamel Daoud is putting 'the Arab', killed by Meursault in Camus's novel, in the position of the hero. He is thus raising the question of the Arab identity during colonialism in Algeria. 

On the occasion of the publication of his novel in the UK, Kamel Daoud is inviting you for a talk at the French Institute on the 24th June, in order to debate over the questions raised by his book. 

The event will be chaired by Jeremy Harding, from the London Review Books, and followed, at 7.15pm, by the screening of Quand Sisyphe se révolte (a documentary about Camus). 

Talk only: £5 - Talk + documentary: £8
