Horror books Review
This book is 212 pages long and The Myth of Sisyphus occupies first 138 pages. Rest of the pages consist of smaller essays namely Summer in Algiers, The Minotaur, or the Stop in Oran, Helen’s Exile, Return to Tipasa, and The Artist and His Time. This book was published in 1991.
There is a Camus collection by Everyman’s Library which consists of The Plague, The Fall, Exile and the Kingdom, The Myth of Sisyphus, and Reflection on the Gullotine. This book was published in 2004.
Both these books are by same translator (Justin O’ Brien) i.e. they are the same and if you buy from Amazon they will cost just about the same (yes the listed price for second book is higher but you’ll find folks selling them for cheap). Yes, the first book has few “other essays” that aren’t in the second one but hey those are rather short essays (all of them combined is 74 pages). On the other hand, second book provides you with four more masterpiece of Camus. Logic says, go with the second one…and get more of Camus for just about the same price!
