You had to have a lot of fortitude to watch French absurdist Albert Camus' 3.5-hour play
It is the birthday of French absurdist writer Albert Camus (1913), who
won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957. Among his books are The
Outsider (1942), The Plague (1947), The Fall (1956), A Happy Death
(1971), and The First Man (1995). In 1959, Camus undertook a formidable
project to adapt Fyodor Dostoyevsky's book The Possessed for the stage.
The play took stamina to watch. It lasted 3½ hours, had 33 actors and 26
set changes. It cost millions to produce. It ran for 180 performances.
Our specialties include Floridiana (Florida History, Florida Authors, Florida Related Ephemera), American History, Literature of the South, Military History (including, but not limited to, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korean War), Children’s Literature, Maps, Leather Bindings and Rare & Unusual items.
We also have a wide variety of general stock, including a large Landscape/Gardening section, a great selection of Christian/Church History/Bible Study titles, Beat Literature, and much more. Please browse our extensive category list.
